Paul is the youngest child born to Dorothy and Samuel Glaser; he has two older siblings. Paul went to the Buckingham Browne & Nichols School, moved to the Cambridge School of Weston, and after matriculation enrolled at Tulane University, earning a Master`s degree in English and theater. He furthered his education at Boston University, earning a Master`s degree in acting and directing in 1967.

Paul`s professional career began on stage, and he managed to appear in several Broadway plays before appearing in the film “Fiddler on the Roof” in 1971 as Perchik, which was followed by brief roles in soap operas “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing” and “Love Of Life” the same year. In 1972 he appeared in the film “Butterflies Are Free” starring Eileen Heckart and Edward Albert, then had a supporting role in the film “Trapped Beneath The Sea” (1974), and the following year was his breakout year; he firstly starred as Harry Houdini in the film “The Great Houdini”, and then got the role of David Starsky in “Starsky & Hutch” (1975-1979), alongside David Soul. The role confirmed him as an actor, and engagement in the show certainly added a substantial amount to his net worth. While the show lasted it was his only engagement, and after it ended, he was selected for the role of North in “Princess Daisy” (1983), and continued through the 1980s with television movies “Jelaousy” (1984) with Angie Dickinson and David Carradine, and “Single Bars, Single Women” (1984), before switching focus to a career as a director.

Paul was inactive as actor until the 2000s, when he got the role of Frank Gugliatta in Peter Levin`s ”And Never Let Her Go” (2001), and two years later he featured in “Something`s Gotta Give” with Jack Nicholson, Keanu Reeves and Diane Keaton. In 2004 he played Original Starsky in the comedy “Starsky & Hutch”, with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Snoop Dogg as leads, and since then appeared in several TV series as a guest actor, including “Criminal Minds” (2008), “Numb3rs” (2008), “The Mentalist” (2009), and “Ray Donovan” (2013-2014), all of which increased his net worth.

Paul`s career as a director began in the late 1970s, when he directed several episodes of the TV series “Starsky & Hutch”, and made his film directing debut with the drama thriller “Amazons” in 1984, starring Stella Stevens and Jack Scalia. He then directed three episodes of “Miami Vice” (1984-1985), and in 1986 the action drama “Band Of The Hand”, with Lauren Holly and Stephen Lang in lead roles. In 1987 came his most successful film “The Running Man”, with Arnold Schwarzenegger as the lead character. In the 1990s, Paul had several accomplishments, including “The Cutting Edge” (1992), “The Air Up There” (1994), among others, and in the 2000s he was hired as an occasional director for the TV series “Judging Amy” (2001-2003), “Third Watch” (2004-2005), “Las Vegas” (2005-2008), and most recently he is directing the film “Intricacy”, which will be released in 2016.

Regarding his personal life, Paul was married two times, firstly to Elizabeth Meyer in 1980 with whom he had two children; Elizabeth died in 1994 after contracting HIV virus through a blood transfusion while giving birth – their daughter also died from HIV. Two years later, Paul marred Tracy Barone, and stayed in marriage until 2007, when she filed for divorce; the couple had a daughter together.

Following the death of his first wife, Paul started the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and was the chairman of the organization until 2002, now serving as honorary chairman.

1This particular film highlights Ben and Owen's strengths which is that they are great comedic actors with tremendous chemistry and they do a really good job.
2We were surprised that the television series had the kind of longevity that it had after only four years of filming it and the reception in six countries around the world was quite extraordinary.
3We all know that looking back only gets you into an accident because you're going to run into something without seeing it.
4First of all I thought it was ugly, I thought it was ridiculous that undercover police guys would drive a striped tomato and I've never been a big champion of Ford.
5I don't think a movie today that captured all the things that we did in the '70s could come close, because it's like asking to recreate the '70s and the audience sensibilities and that's impossible.
6I was surprised that the TV series was popular itself, but after that it went on to become more popular over the years and thus it seemed eventually that they would turn it into a movie.
7I've been writing a lot, I've a few projects I'm trying to finance, I do some acting, I do some directing. . . . Apart from that, if I could get lower than a 10 handicap on my golf game, I'd be thrilled.
8No, the '70s was a totally different sensibility and that allowed us to break new ground as a cop show.
9Secondly, I thought it was ridiculous to have two undercover policemen driving around in a striped tomato.
10So being present becomes more and more the exercise the older you get.
11So it eventually became a question of WHEN they were going to make a movie.
12The car is a character in the piece -- I've never liked the car, I submitted to its objectionable popularity.
13On Starsky and Hutch (1975): "We had a groundbreaking show with unique characters. But all people remember is that car" (quoted in USA Today, 3 March 2004).
1Appeared in a commercial for "Consolidated Credit Consulting". [2009]
2Mayflower theatre, Southampton, UK. Fiddler on the Roof. [September 2013]
3His feature film debut was in the classic film Fiddler on the Roof (1971), portraying Perchik.
4First child, daughter Ariel Glaser, passed away from complications from AIDS in August of 1988. She contracted HIV via breast milk, when her mother, Elizabeth Glaser, was not aware that she had contracted HIV via a blood transfusion. Her second child, Jake Glaser, contracted HIV in Elizabeth's womb. He is still alive and in reasonably good health as of December 2010.
5First wife Elizabeth Glaser contracted HIV, after an emergency blood transfusion, right after giving birth to daughter Ariel Glaser. Elizabeth passed away from complications from AIDS in 1994.
6Directed a PSA spot on AIDS awareness in 1989, starring a soon-to-leave-office President Ronald Reagan.
7Is a very close friend of director Michael Mann. They both met during the filming of a Starsky and Hutch (1975) episode, adapted from Mann's screenplay, and they became friends. Later Glaser directed several episodes of Mann's TV shows Miami Vice (1984) (including the Emmy-award winning episode "The Prodigal Son") and Robbery Homicide Division (2002). Mann also served as a producer on Glaser's crime film Band of the Hand (1986).
8The writers and producers of Starsky and Hutch (1975) thought he was similar in type to the late actor Paul Muni. In fact, they even wrote it into a show where Starsky's mother says he's "the Paul Muni type".
9Was roommates in college with Bruce Paltrow.
10Met first wife Elizabeth Glaser in June 1975, while they driving down Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood. They smiled at each other, then Paul motioned for Elizabeth to pull over, where he invited her out for Chinese food. Elizabeth moved in with Paul three months later in September 1975.
11Was roommates with Andy Summers of rock group The Police.
12Wife Elizabeth Glaser was the founder of the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
13The famous Starsky and Hutch (1975) "striped tomato" Ford Gran Torino appears briefly in an episode of The Agency (2001), directed by Glaser.
14Member of Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity.
15Son of a Boston architect.
16Attended Boston University School for the Arts.
17He and wife, Tracy Barone, have a daughter, Zoe, born in October 1997.
