Josh Saviano is an American actor best known for his role as Kevin Arnold's best friend, Paul Joshua Pfeiffer, in the sitcom The Wonder Years.
His role in The Wonder Years was one of his few television or movie roles. Other roles were as Kid Belz in the movie The Wrong Guys in 1988 and Max Plotkin in the made-for-TV movie Camp Cucamonga in 1990.
The latter was his last film or television role other than his role in The Wonder Years, which he played until the show's end in 1993.
He also guest starred on the show The Ray Bradbury Theatre in 1985 as Willie and on Reading Rainbow and Fun House as himself.
Similarities between Saviano's character Paul Pfeiffer and The Simpsons character Milhouse Van Houten can be made, both in terms of their appearance and their roles as the geeky side-kick friend to the protagonist.
For some time, an urban myth circulated that Saviano grew up to be singer Marilyn Manson.
Saviano majored in Political Science at Yale University where he became president of Sigma Nu Fraternity. Upon graduation in 1998 he worked for a while as a paralegal for a New York City law firm.
In 2000 he worked for an Internet firm before entering Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in August of the same year.
Saviano is currently an associate with Morrison Cohen LLP.
