HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — Steve Guttenberg, star of four movie franchises — namely “Police Academy,” “Three Men And A Baby,” “Short Circuit” and “Cocoon” — will receive the 2,455 star on the Hollywood Walk of  Fame Monday.

Fittingly, his star will be placed in front of the Police Activities League, 6411 Hollywood Boulevard.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m.

Guttenberg, 53, is currently starring on Broadway in the critically-acclaimed “Relatively Speaking.”

Considered one of Hollywood’s most enduring and endearing actors, Guttenberg has also starred in more than fifty movies, including “Diner,” “The Boys From Brazil” and “Bedroom Window.”

His TV credits include “The Day After,” “Miracle On Ice,” “Something For Joey” and “Veronica Mars.” Guttenberg was also a season six contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Off-camera, Guttenberg is also known for his philanthropy and good works. He spent a week at the Houston Astrodome volunteering after Hurricane Katrina. He also started the Guttenhouse Project which houses at-risk foster care youth when they turn 18 and presumably have no place else to turn.

He is also known for spearheading a campaign to provide glasses for 50,000 poor and low-income children whose families could not afford eye care.

Guest speakers scheduled to speak on Gutterberg’s behalf include film Academy president Tom Sherak and comedian Jon Lovitz.

    Good for Steve! He was robbed at the Oscars in 1995 when he didn’t win Best Supporting Actor for “It Takes Two”.

    OK not Gremlins. But Short Circuit “I am not knowing”. I remember him saying he was in dental school when his movie career started.
