Casper Van Dien was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey and started his acting career off in television with recurring roles in One Life to Live and Beverly Hills 90210. However, Van Dien's big break would come with his starring role in 1997 Starship Troopers. The following year he would star in the big budget Tarzan and the Lost City.
Unfortunately, Van Dien's career never went too far after that. It's hit a new low as he stars in the straight-to-DVD release of Sarship Troopers: Marauder.
