Life and career[edit]

Schnetzer was born in Canton, Massachusetts, the son of Thomas A. Schnetzer.[1] He attended Catholic Memorial School.[4] After playing the role of Julie Olson Williams' brother, Steven Olson, on Days of Our Lives, he joined the cast of the ABC soap opera One Life to Live as fitness expert Marcello Salta.[5] He later played attorney Cass Winthrop on Another World (1982–86, 1987–99).[5] After the cancellation of Another World, he made guest appearances as Cass Winthrop on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns (1999–2002; 2005; 2006) and on Guiding Light (2002).[5] He can also been seen in a commercial for an allergy nasal spray called Astepro. He has also been billed as Stephen St. Paul.

Schnetzer has recently become a prolific voiceover talent advertising for many companies, such as Mercedes-Benz, and various prescription and over the counter medications. His voice is frequently heard today on radio and television.[citation needed]

On Broadway, he was in The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?; A Talent for Murder; and Filumena, directed by Laurence Olivier.[9]
