His career in the entertainment industry actually started when he was four years old, appearing in a Mattel Toys commercial. He went on to appear in a number of radio and TV commercials by his teenage years, paving his way to recognition and earning a decent income.

Mendenhall made his foray onto the small screen in 1979, landing the role of Mike Webber in the ABC television medical drama “General Hospital”, remaining on the show until 1986. His performance earned him a Soap Opera Digest Award and two Young Artist Awards, and greatly contributed to his popularity and to his net worth.

In the meantime, he was also involved in many other projects, such as the TV film “The Last Song”, and the series “Taxi”, in which he had the recurring role as Jason. He made his film debut with the leading role as Peter in the 1983 science fiction film “Space Riders”, and went on to appear in series such as “Diff’rent Strokes”, “Goodnight, Beantown” and “The Twilight Zone”. His wealth grew larger.

Mendenhall also did an extensive voice over work by the mid-’80s, providing his voice for a number of TV films and series, among which the animated series “Rainbow Brite” and film “Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer”, and the animated series “G.I.

Mendenhall’s most notable roles came with the late ’80s films, the sport drama “Over the Top”, alongside Sylvester Stallone in which he played Michael Cutler-Hawk, and the comedy action “They Still Call Me Bruce”, in which he portrayed Billy White. These performances enabled him to achieve great popularity, appearing in every major teen magazine, and to amass a significant fortune.

In 1990 Mendenhall starred as Sy in the drama film “Streets”, after which he took a break from his acting caree; focusing on education, he enrolled at the University of Southern California in the mid-’90, and then attended law school.

The 2000s saw him landing a job as a contract attorney at major studio law departments such as NBC and Universal Studios. He also worked as a journalist for publications such as Indie Slate Magazine and the Daily Journal. All contributed to his wealth.
