One of the Alpha Betas in Revenge of the Nerds is named Danny Burke. Revenge of the Nerds played on Fox Movie Channel tonight. In the closing credits, when Burke is in the Atoms lockerroom wearing makeup and a blond wig, he resembles former Notre Dame receiver Jeff Samardzija.
An actor named Matt Salinger portrayed Burke. Matt Salinger was born in Windsor, Vermont on February 13, 1960. A leap year! He attended Phillips Academy at Andover. Impressive! His other acting credits include Baby Fever (1994) and Let the Devil Wear Black (1999).
An actor named Matt Salinger portrayed Burke. Matt's father is J.D. Salinger. Having attended America's most elite prep school and then starring as a bullying athlete on a football team, Matt lived a daily revenge-dream against Holden Caulfield. Being the son of J.D. Salinger is difficult, and playing a supporting (albeit notable) role in Revenge of the Nerds would be like Jesus's kid being a competent but obscure (albeit notable) hypnotist who tricks pilgrims into acting like chickens in a thriving club on the outskirts of Golgotha.
