The details (from wikipedia)


Andy Tennant (born June 15, 1955) is an American screenwriter, film and television director, and dancer.

Life and career

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Tennant was raised in Flossmoor, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. His father was Don Tennant, a legendary creative advertising talent with Leo Burnett Agency in Chicago. As a boy, he spent his summers on Old Mission Peninsula in northern Michigan and at Camp Minocqua in northern Wisconsin. He graduated from Homewood-Flossmoor High School in 1973. He studied theater under John Houseman at University of Southern California.

Tennant's first acting role in a motion picture was in 1980 as a college student, Melio, on an all-night scavenger hunt in a surreal film, Midnight Madness which cameo'd cowboy-hatted Pee Wee Herman as a pin ball arcade manager; Andy's first big break in films came when he was cast as a dancer and chorus member in the movies Grease and Grease 2.

Tennant is married. He and his wife have four children, three of whom are triplets.
