Born in New York City, Bruce Solomon has been most notably known as the handsome, curly-haired, ever-on-the make police sergeant, "Dennis Irving Foley", in "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman."
He was discovered for the role by his acting teacher, Joan Darling, who was also one of the "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" directors. The role was originally written to portray the character as an older, middle-aged cop, but was soon changed to be more tailor-made for Solomon when he landed the part.
Chasing after Mary (not to mention her sister, Cathy, and Roberta, the door-to-door cosmetics lady) was a recurrent first season theme for the "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" night-time serial. After a one year absence from the show, Bruce Solomon's character, "Dennis" returned, nearing the end of the series, running off to Niagra Falls with Mary Hartman. Louise Lasser leaving the title role, the show then became a new series, "Fernwood Tonight", starring several of the original cast members.
Bruce left the show as well, moving on to other TV and film roles, which he continues to do to this day.
