Later, he and fellow Happy Days cohort, Erin Moran, starred in the short-lived spin-off series Joanie Loves Chachi (1982-1983).
But he returned to prominence in 2007 by riding the reality series gravy train with "Scott Baio is 45 and Single" (VH1, 2006- ), a journey of self-discovery that promised to resurrect his love life as well as his career.In 1993, he played his first dramatic role in a series when he was cast opposite Dick Van Dyke in Diagnosis Murder.In the fall of 1997, Baio again returned to sitcom work with the Fox series Rewind in which he plays a marketing executive with a sense of déjà vu that leads him to return to his adolescent years during the '70s. He made his first feature-film appearance as Bugsy in Bugsy Malone (1976).Sloan, oddly enough, played the body double for Pamela Anderson in . Baio, meanwhile, played the role of boyfriend for Anderson for a few years. While Baio apparently does not live up to his single reputation, we hope other reality TV stars are, indeed, who they claim to be.
Just as the urban edge had worked for a number of rising screen stars in the 1970s (i.e., John Travolta), Baio adopted a similar stance.
