Glenn Scarpelli & Jude Belanger

Glenn Christopher Scarpelli (born July 6, 1966) is a child actor and singer. Born in Staten Island, New York, he is the son of long time Archie Comics artist Henry Scarpelli. He attended a private Catholic school, St. Joseph Hill Academy, from K to 8th grade.

He is best known for his 1980-1983 role of Alex Handris on the long-running television situation comedy One Day at a Time. He left that sitcom to appear in the NBC sitcom Jennifer Slept Here. Scarpelli's other television appearances include 3-2-1 Contact, Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, MacGyver, The Love Boat, and Fantasy Island. He was also a co-host in Summer 1983 of the NBC game show/human interest show Fantasy (game show).

In 2012 he announced he was divorcing from his husband, Jude Belanger: "It seems it's time for a catch up. (My husband) Jude (Belanger) and I are in the process of a divorce after 14 years. We are still great friends and still own the TV station together but we have grown apart on a personal level. We were legally married in California before the whole Prop 8 debacle and now have to get legally divorced. I am still a great supporter of LGBT rights and Marriage Equality, but one thing we need to know in our community is "Marriage Equality" can also mean "Divorce Equality". All's fair in love and war. I have been the type to always remain friends with my exes and Jude is no exception. We've shared so much and no one can ever take that away from us! We will always love each other but I am embracing the single life again... and loving it!" (Picture: Jude Belanger)

In 1977, at the age of 10, Scarpelli made his Broadway debut, appearing in the play Golda with Anne Bancroft. He later returned to the stage in 1979 with the role of Richard, Duke of York in the Broadway revival of Richard III starring Al Pacino.

He released at least one musical album of songs, one of which was entitled "Get A Love On".

"I have been back and forth between LA and Sedona for two decades. I officially moved to Sedona with Jude in 1999. I wasn't sure what I would do for a career. It's not like there's a lot of TV jobs available. So I decided to create one for myself. Sedona NOW TV, Channel 18 in Sedona, first aired on April 4, 2002. We will have been on the air 10 years this April. I'm very proud of the station and the work we do. I'm also very proud to have been a Sedona Internationall Film Festival Media Sponsor for a full decade. The station has also been nominated for four Rocky Mountain Emmys for our documentary work and one for me as interviewer (interviewing Nick Nolte at a Film Festival Event)."

Scarpelli currently lives in Sedona, Arizona, where he has been the CEO of the Sedona Now Network, a community television station, since 2003.

He has remained close friends with One Day at a Time co-stars Mackenzie Phillips and Bonnie Franklin (up until her death).
