"Armstrong received his first professional acting break starring as Puck in "A Midsummer's Night's Dream" after graduating from the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Michigan. In the mid-1970s, he moved to New York and continued acting in various off-Broadway productions and tours. His first breakthrough film role came shortly thereafter when he was cast as Tom Cruise's best friend and confidant Miles Dalby in the 1983 sleeper hit, Risky Business. That experience propelled Armstrong to Los Angeles, where he has become an accomplished film and television actor.

On television, Armstrong starred as Burt Viola on the ABC hit series Moonlighting. His guest-starring roles include appearances on That '70s Show, Cursed, Ally McBeal, 3rd Rock From The Sun, Felicity, Suddenly Susan, Cybill, Ellen, Diagnosis Murder, Murphy Brown and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

Armstrong currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Elaine, and daughter, Lily."
