Pinchot was born on May 20, 1959 in Manhattan, New York City, USA. His mother, Rosina (née Asta), was an Italian American and a typist, and his father, Henry (originally Poncharavsky) was of Russian descent and a bookbinder, who was born in New York and raised in Paris. His younger brother Justin is also an actor.
Bronson was raised in Southern California where he graduated from South Pasadena High School at the top of his class and was appointed valedictorian. He earned a full scholarship to Yale University where he studied fine art in Morse College, graduating magna cum laude. After he was cast in a college play a casting director discovered him, which led to his film debut, Risky Business.
Pinchot appeared in several feature films, such as Risky Business (1983), Beverly Hills Cop (1984), True Romance (1993), Beverly Hills Cop III (1994), It's My Party (1996), Courage Under Fire (1996) and The First Wives Club (1996). Fisher Stevens asked Pinchot to play Ben Jabituya in the 1986 film Short Circuit, but Pinchot was fired. He also played Dennis Kemper in the short-lived NBC sitcom Sara, and Balki Bartokomous in the long-running ABC sitcom Perfect Strangers.
After Perfect Strangers concluded filming its eight-season run in September 1992 (with the condensed final season airing during the summer of 1993), Pinchot immediately secured the starring role on a new sitcom for CBS, entitled The Trouble with Larry. The series premiered just three weeks after ABC's Perfect Strangers finale in August 1993, and one episode (which never aired) was directed by Mark Linn-Baker, Pinchot's co-star on Strangers. After three weeks of dismal ratings and poor reviews, The Trouble with Larry was cancelled.
Pinchot would subsequently get rehired by Perfect Strangers producers Tom Miller and Bob Boyett for roles on two more of their sitcoms: Step By Step, where he played French hairdresser Jean-Luc Rieupeyroux in early 1997, and, that fall, on Meego, where he played an alien who crash-landed on Earth and took up residence with an American family. He also played the role of The Prankster in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
In 2008, Pinchot read for the audio version of The Learners, author Chip Kidd's followup to The Cheese Monkeys. Between 2009 and 2014, Pinchot narrated over 100 audiobooks, for which he won a number of awards. He was chosen by Audible.com as their 2010 Narrator of the Year. On February 12, 2012, Pinchot starred in a home restoration show on DIY Network titled The Bronson Pinchot Project. The program is based on his hobby of restoring old homes using salvaged materials.
On March 8, 2018, it was announced that Pinchot would be playing George Hawthorne the villainous, puritanical principal of Baxter High, who regularly clashes with Sabrina Spellman and her friends in the Netflix series based on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic series. The series premiered in October 2018.
