About Peter Fonda (1940 – )
Peter Fonda was born on February 23, 1940 in New York City, New York.

Legendary actor Henry Fonda, was Peter Fonda's dad. Peter Fonda is the father of Bridget Fonda and Justin Fonda; it seems we will see a long line of family members in the entertainment field. Peter is also the brother of actress Jane Fonda.

Peter Fonda is father-in-law to composer Danny Elfman, who married Peter's daughter, Bridget.

The only recorded time that we saw father and son on the big screen together was in the 1979 movie Wanda Nevada. Henry Fonda made a brief appearance in the picture making this the only time they worked together.

The 1969 hit movie, Easy Rider was more then just a role for Peter Fonda. He took three major parts in the making of this movie. Not only did Peter Fonda played the role of Wyatt (which also had him actually smoking marijuana on-camera), but he was also a producer and writer.

Peter Fonda was known for being a great actor but also for being very public with his experimentation with drugs, that we did see in his films; Easy Rider and the 1967 film The Trip. Another well-known LSD experience was with friend John Lennon. Together they inspired pronouncements in the song "She Said She Said."

Peter Fonda directed and starred in The Hired Hand, a critically acclaimed western.

The Roger Corman movie of 1966 was The Wild Angels, where Peter Fonda co-starred with Nancy Sinatra.

It seems biker movies run in the family. In 1993, Peter Fonda made a cameo appearance in his daughter Bridget's movie; Bodies, Rest & Motion.

Working opposite Brooke Shields, Peter Fonda played a gambler who wins young Brooke Shields in a poker game, in the 1979 movie; Wanda Nevada. Fonda also was the Director of Wanda Nevada.
