Appearing in several feature films, Bronson quickly made a big name for himself from long-running ABC sitcom, Perfect Strangers. In 2009 and 2014, he narrated over 100 audiobooks that won him a number of awards. Audible.com also chose him as their Narrator of the Year in 2010.

Beverly Hills Cop: Stole 2-Hour Movie With 2-Minute Long Gay Character
The actor played the gay hotelier Serge in the movie Beverley Hills Cop. And in the movie, he bonds with Eddie Murphy’s cop character, Axel, who is quite vulnerable to homophobic put-downs. However, Bronson's character consequently pulls the cop’s flickering humanity and apathy towards gay people.
The brief but brilliant encounter with Murphy left the audience howling with laughter. Being a mere supporting role, he unexpectedly heaved major attention in the movie. His role of the gay art dealer with a few Israeli impersonations made him so famous that he had to flee away to Greece after having a huge queue of visitors in his site.
That one two minute part in the hit movie changed his life, for good, and established himself as one of the best actors in the industry.
Bronson Pinchot Almost Married Amy Heckerling
Perfect Strangers star was frequently linked with many women, but he never confirmed any relationships. This led to the point where he was accused of being gay by the media and his relationship with the press went worse.
He was seriously dating American film director Amy Heckerling in the late 80s, with the pair being together for nearly four years.

But they parted ways shortly after getting engaged to get married.
After dating Amy, Bronson's personal life has taken a bit backstage, while he has continued to excel in his professional front.
He has not married and is neither dating anyone at the moment. He has been working on his own project and is quite happy with his achievements so far.
What is Bronson up to Now?
You’ll be quite surprised to hear that Bronson Pinchot has been active in his acting career and was recently tapped for a recurring role in Netflix’s upcoming series, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch.
The project reenacts the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that resides in horror, occult and, obviously, witchcraft.
Bronson is playing George Hawthorne, Baxter High’s villainous and prudish Principal. He’s a constant obstacle in Sabrina’s side, always attempting to thwart the heroine and her friends’ escapade.
However, despite all the works now, he is still known as that innocent gay hotelier helping Eddie Murphy blend his espresso with a lemon. He will be hoping that changes with a darker take on the 70s classic, Sabrina.
