    To keep track of all the people who have arrived on the scene with a massive explosion only to disappear and possibly never be heard from again, EgoTV presents “Where they At?”, a status update of where those people have done since the limelight has faded.

    Today’s Subject: David Faustino

    How It All Started: Faustino made his television debut at the age of three months when he appeared on the Lily Tomlin Special. In 1980 he landed a small part on Little House on the Prairie. Throughout the early to mid 80s, Faustino guest starred on many well known TV shows like Family Ties, St. Elsewhere, and The Love Boat. They would lead to his first full-time acting job in 1987 when he won the role of Bud Bundy on the primetime Fox sitcom Married with Children.

    The Aftermath: Faustino and the Married… with Children gang were on the air 11 seasons. The show, notable for being the first prime time television series to air on Fox, made Faustino a household name and a favorite in teen magazines. The show still runs in syndication on several stations and is a best seller in DVDs. Faustino did little acting after Married went off the air besides reality show appearances (Celebrity Boot Camp) and minor roles in low-budget films. In 2007, Faustino was featured in a McDonald’s commercial introducing the “Dollar Menunaires”.

    Where Is He Now? Faustino is still working, currently staring in Star-ving, a weekly Internet comedy series on Crackle.com. Faustino plays an exaggerated version of himself in the series, which he wrote and developed with friends. “This is a very twisted take on what I’ve been through all these years,” Faustino said. He has also signed a deal with National Lampoon to be involved with three small films.
