Brice Beckham is a former child star who played the character Wesley T. Owens on the sitcom Mr. Belvedere which was originally aired on ABC from 1985-1990. Wesley was the little runt who would antagonize his family's housekeeper, Mr. Belvedere, played by veteran British actor Christopher Hewitt.
Beckham was born on Feb. 11, 1976 in Long Beach, California. He began his thespian career acting in school plays. He later went on to do voices in an assortment of radio commercials. He also starred in an episode of "Alice" prior to landing his role on Mr. Belvedere.
Wesley and Mr. Belvedere were always at odds on the hit sitcom Mr. Belvedere. Wesley would make fun of Mr. Belvedere's fat gut and advanced age, whereas Mr. Belvedere would frequently poke fun at how annoying and immature Wesley was on the show. Deep down, however, they really did love each other. When Wesley found out that the Mr. Belvedere character was leaving the show, Wesley was upset and Belvedere comforted him this tender hug:
After Mr. Belvedere was cancelled in 1990 Beckham struggled to find more acting work. He is currently a stage actor in Los Angeles with the Namaste Theater Company. He also branched out in to production in 2004, producing a musical version of Deliverance. In case you're wondering, Christopher Hewitt passed away in 2001 and was unable to participate in Beckham's production of Deliverance. One can only wonder whether Mr. Belvedere would have made Beckham "squeal like a pig" if he were still alive.
Beckham is also a boy-child who never grew up. According to IMDB, Beckham's favorite hobby is drawing cartoons, which he excels at doing. Finally, according to his own professional bio, one of Beckham's "special skills" is called "The Fat Tongue." Do I even want to know what that is? For this and the other reasons discussed above, Beckham is one washed-up celebrity!
