When Anthony Anderson and his real-life mama teamed up for T-Mobile during the 2020 Super Bowl broadcast, the Steve Pink-directed spot instantly resonated, as much for the escalating comedic beats as the credibility of the performances. The director, Steve Pink - who in addition to Anderson has worked with Kevin Hart, Blake Lively, Justin Long, Jack Black, Drew Barrymore, John Cusack and Jonah Hill - can go light or dark as he explores the ironies of our condition. An actor, writer, producer and the director of films such as ABOUT LAST NIGHT, ACCEPTED and HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, Steve is the co-writer of the films GROSSE POINTE BLANK and HIGH FIDELITY. He imbues characters with a likability that is at war with their flaws, while making the scenarios believable and the ironies palpable.
Steve’s lightning wit and lively shooting style make him even more of an asset in the director’s chair. The same is true of his work in Television, as a co-executive producer on the TV series ENTOURAGE, a producer on the Tom Cruise vehicle KNIGHT AND DAY, and as a director of the Netflix original series COBRA KAI.
Equally at home going darkly comic and bringing laughter to mamas everywhere, Steve is a natural for the VANDAL roster.
