Terry Bradshaw, the Hall of Fame Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, twice appeared on "Married with Children".)

After being cut by the Steelers, O'Neill went back to YSU to join the new theater department. After graduating, he became a social studies teacher at his alma mater, Ursuline High School, before fully committing to acting. He...

Ed O'Neill is exactly one year older than Dan Lauria whose iconic character, Jack Arnold on The Wonder Years (1988) wore the same beige jacket that Ed O'Neill's character, Al Bundy, wore. Al Bundy is also one year older than Jack Arnold from an "original air date" standpoint, as Married... with Children (1987) premiered the year before The Wonder Years (1988). In addition, Al Bundy's birthday (November 7, 1948) is the day after Jack Arnold's (November 6, 1927).

Because of his signature role playing Al Bundy, a character who had no interest in politics outside of some extremely conservative/reactionary episodes, fans assumed that O'Neill was also conservative and/or a Republican. In real life, O'Neill is a longtime Democrat who publicly opposed the Iraq War in 2003 and did a campaign ad for future President Barack Obama in 2008 (playing a character named "Al the Shoe Salesman").
