  Summary  

Andrew Eppley Shue is an American actor, known for his role as Billy Campbell on the television series Melrose Place (1992–1998). He is currently on the Board of Directors for Do Something (which he co-founded) and is the co-founder of the social networking website CafeMom.

  Biography  

 early life
Shue was born in Wilmington, Delaware. His mother, Anne Harms (née Wells), was a bank executive who was the vice president of the private division of the Chemical Banking Corporation. His father, James Shue, is a lawyer and real estate developer who was the president of the International Food and Beverage Corporation and was active in Republican politics, having once unsuccessfully run for the U.S. Congress in New Jersey.

Shue attended Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey. As a young boy, he attended YMCA Camp Widjiwagan, backpacking in the Absaroka Range with a friend from the midwest. Along with his sister, actress Elisabeth Shue, he was inducted into the CHS Hall of fame in 1994. At Dartmouth College, as he was in high school, Shue was a Regional All America soccer player and spent a winter studying and playing soccer in Glasgow, Scotland for Queen's Park FC. Shue received his B.A. in history from Dartmouth in 1989. After graduating, he visited Zimbabwe where he simultaneously taught high school math.
Shue became engaged to The Today Show's Amy Robach in September 2009. They were married on February 6, 2010.

 career
 Acting
In May 1992, Shue was selected to play Billy Campbell on the Aaron Spelling hit show Melrose Place. He starred opposite Courtney Thorne-Smith, whom he later dated. Andrew stayed on the show for six years, during which Melrose became a smash TV hit. During this time he appeared as a wife beater in the Francis Ford Coppola film The Rainmaker .

A 1996 commercial for SportsCenter on ESPN has Shue being traded for former Sports Center anchor Charlie Steiner, where Steiner takes his position on Melrose Place and Shue takes his on SportsCenter.

Shue worked with his sister Elisabeth, his brother John, and his brother-in-law Davis Guggenheim (the Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth) on the 2007 feature film, Gracie. This film (which he co-produced and had a minor role in) pays tribute to the Shue siblings' elder brother Will who died in an accident in 1988. The story is loosely based on Elisabeth's childhood when she was the only girl playing on an all-boys soccer team.

 Soccer
During his time in Zimbabwe, Shue played for the Bulawayo Highlanders. That season, the Highlanders won the double . At the time, Shue was the only white player in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League. In September 1993, he played one game with Los Angeles United of the Continental Indoor Soccer League. In July 1994, he played two games for the Anaheim Splash. In 1996, while still on Melrose Place, Shue played for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer, recording one assist in five games. He spent the entire 1997 season on injured reserve.
