Birth Place: N/A
Mario Van Peebles was born January 15, 1957 in Mexico City. Melvin Van Peebles once told his son that Hollywood wasn't predominantly black or predominantly white: it was predominantly green. With that in mind, young Mario got a B.A. in economics from Columbia University in 1978. He got a job with a film investment firm, before pursuing a career in show business. He'd actually made his screen debut in the opening scene one of his father's films in 1971. When he was more mature, he earned a part in Heartbreak Ridge, for which he won an NAACP Image Award in 1986. He then acted in film and television movies.
He got his first chance to direct on his own starring series, "Sonny Spoon", and went on to direct episodes of "Wiseguy," "21 Jump Street," and others, including an after-school special, "Malcolm Takes a Shot," in which he also appeared.
In 1990 he collaborated with his father on a poorly received comedy feature, Identity Crisis, serving as writer, unofficial co-director, and co-producer), but it was 1991's New Jack City that really launched Mario's career behind the camera. He has since acted in and directed several films.
In 1991, he was chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the world.
