Faustino made his television debut at the age of three months when he appeared on the Lily Tomlin Special. Faustino didn't start regularly acting until 1980 after a smaller part on Little House on the Prairie. Throughout the early to mid 80s, Faustino would go on to guest star in many well known TV shows such as Family Ties, St. Elsewhere, and The Love Boat. He would also guest star in many not so well-known TV shows. But in 1987 he would land a full-time gig on Married with Children.
Married with ChildrenEdit
Fox's Married with Children was Faustino's big break as he would play Bud, the younger of the two Bundy children. He played the character from its debut on April 5, 1987 until its final first-run episode broadcast on June 9, 1997. Faustino appeared in 259 episodes.
While filming the sitcom Married with Children throughout the '90s, Faustino would continue to make guest appearances in many sitcoms and dramas. He reprised the role of Bud Bundy in such shows as Parker Lewis Can't Lose and Top of the Heap. Faustino also appeared in Burke's Law, MADtv and The New Addams Family.
Template:Cleanup In 2002, he appeared in the celebrity reality television special Celebrity Boot Camp (a shortened version of the Boot Camp series for b-list celebrities). In 2001, he appeared in the low-budget film Killer Bud produced by Aglet Productions. In 2005, Faustino guest-starred on two episodes of One on One. One of the roles was as Flex Washington's agent.
Faustino also starred as Jason Dockery in the 2008 movie RoboDoc. In April 2007, Faustino was featured in an American McDonald’s commercial introducing the "Dollar Menunaires". He currently stars in Star-ving, a weekly Internet comedy series on Crackle, an online video network backed by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Faustino plays an exaggerated version of himself in the series, which he wrote and developed with several friends as an “anti-Entourage.”
Faustino appeared with the cast of Married with Children again at the 7th Annual TV Land Awards in 2009, presented by Dr. Phil. He also had cameo appearances in two episodes of the HBO series Entourage.
