Though Leslie Easterbrook has only one major feature film role to her credit, it happens to come courtesy of one of the most durable comedy franchises of the 1980s (and briefly into the 1990s). Playing off her looks, Easterbrook first gained notice as Marilyn Monroe-wannabe Rhonda Lee on the hit sitcom Laverne and Shirley from 1980 to 1983. Along with a supporting role in the sex comedy Private Resort (1984), Easterbrook further made her bombshell mark as Sgt. Callahan in the hit misfit comedy Police Academy that same year. Though she returned to TV on the daytime serial Ryan's Hope from 1985 to 1987 and played a substantial part in the TV docudrama The Taking of Flight 847: The Uli Derickson Story (1988), Easterbrook also reprised the role of Callahan in all six of the Police Academy sequels. After the franchise ended in 1994, Easterbrook continued to appear frequently as a guest star on primetime TV, acted in the TV movie Two Voices (1997), and displayed her vocal talents in musical theater.
