Life and career

Malinger was born in Redwood City, California, the son of Laura, a producer, and Brian Malinger, a producer and sales representative.[1]

Malinger co-starred with Jean-Claude Van Damme in 1995 film Sudden Death. Though it was a box office flop, he earned $1.1 million, a contrast from Sleepless in Seattle for which he only earned $24,000 even though it launched his career.

He provided the original voice of T.J. Detweiler on the animated series Recess. He did not reprise the role in the next seasons, as he was replaced by Andrew Lawrence. He was a recurring character on the teen drama Party of Five.

He also provided the voice for the puppy Spike, part of the "Riley Gang" in Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco; and played the role of Payton Shoemaker in Little Bigfoot.

He starred with Shelley Long and Treat Williams on the CBS comedy Good Advice, which lasted two seasons, 1993 to 1994.

He was in an episode of Touched by an Angel in 2001, playing Nick Albright, a troubled teenager after his parents' separation.

He appeared in the episode "Shattered" on Without a Trace (which aired on April 27, 2006) as Jason McMurphy.

As of 2008, Malinger worked as a general manager at Automotive Legends in Malibu.[2]
