Mark Deklin: Another Penn Stater to Watch on TV
Liz Fox ’80, a former member of our Alumni Council, called my attention to the fact that we’ve got another Penn Stater on TV: Mark Deklin ’90 is a character on the show Lone Star, which debuts on Fox tonight at 9 p.m. Deklin, a Pittsburgh native, is the subject of stories in both the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Tribune Review; you can read them here and here.
It took me a while to find Deklin on our alumni database, but it turns out that Deklin is his stage name. His real name is Mark Schwotzer and he has a bachelor’s in English from Penn State. You may also remember him as one of the hunks on Desperate Housewives. Here is Deklin’s bio on the Fox site (click on the “Actor Bio” bar if that’s not what you see right away).
Oh, and the new season of Modern Family starring Emmy-nominated Ty Burrell ’97g starts Wednesday.
