Rob Reiner as Meathead

Rob Reiner had his first series regular role when he was chosen to play Michael “Meathead” Stivic. Shooting a television show was not new to him though: as a little boy, Reiner spent a lot of time in the home of the Petrie family in The Dick Van Dyke Show, which was created by his father Carl. Reiner got his start in acting with roles in TV shows like Batman, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Beverly Hillbillies.
