Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

As an ac- tor, Rob Reiner cut his teeth in films directed by his father Carl, including Enter Laughing (1967) and Where's Poppa? (1970). Then he costarred in one of television's landmark shows, the sharp-tongued sitcom "All in the Family" (1971-78). Cast as the liberal son-in-law of bigoted Archie Bunker (who referred to him as "Meathead") he found his niche in TV history, and won two Emmy Awards. His attempts to create his own followup series were nowhere near as successful, but he did cowrite and coproduce a pair of TV movies, in which he also starred, More Than Friends (1979, with then-wife Penny Marshall) and Million Dollar Infield (1982). He also appeared in such features as Halls of Anger (1970), Summertree (1971), and Fire Sale (1977). He scored his first hit behind the camera as the director and cowriter of the mock rock documentary, This Is Spinal Tap (1984); he also appeared onscreen as director Marty DeBergi. With one foot in the director's door, he followed up with The Sure Thing (1985) and then caught the brass ring with Stephen King's ode to adolescence, Stand by Me (1986). Since then he's become one of Hollywood's most bankable directors, with such varied mainstream movies as The Princess Bride (1987), When Harry Met Sally ... (1989), Misery (1990), A Few Good Men (1992), and North (1994). As a principal in Castle Rock Productions, he has also had a hand in producing films and TV series, often in partnership with longtime friends like Billy Crystal. He occasionally takes an acting part, and makes the most of it, as he did in Throw Momma From the Train (1987, directed by Crystal), Postcards From the Edge (1990), The Spirit of 76 (1990, directed by his brother Lucas), Sleepless in Seattle (1993), Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway (1994), and Bye Bye, Love (1995).
