Worked in theater before moving to New York to begin an acting career. This eventually led to his breakthrough role on the show Family Ties (1982). He has moved on to several other projects since the show's end, including three of the In the Line of Duty movies, narrating audio books, and, probably most notably, playing the character Burt in the Tremors (1990) films.

After stints working with Lampoon alumni by doing graphics on SCTV and uncredited work on National Lampoon's Vacation (designing the Walley World moose, the car, and other elements), Gross worked with Reitman again on Ghostbusters. Gross again served as associate producer and also designed the Ghostbusters "No Ghosts" logo. He received executive producer credit on Ghostbusters II and the animated series, and on subsequent Reitman-directed or produced films (including Twins, Kindergarten Cop, and Beethoven). Gross retired from Hollywood in 1995 and returned to painting and other art endeavors.
