Peter Parros (born November 11, 1960 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American actor and screenwriter. His acting credits include stage, screen and television, but he may be most recognized for his nearly decade-long portrayal of Dr. Ben Harris on the CBS soap As the World Turns.
Peter Parros was born in Brooklyn, New York, but grew up in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. He became interested in acting and the film industry after holding a job with a company that created special effects miniatures. When interviewed, he referred to the initial stages of his acting endeavor as being completely different than what other actors and actresses found. He said, "What drew me in wasn't the Shakespearean quality of acting. I was going to be the black Arnold Schwarzenegger.". He then became an editor for the magazine "International Modeler", and went to school to be a dental technician.
Initially, Parros acted solely in theater. Eventually, he found minor success on screen. In 1984, Parros landed his first television role as Michael, Tootie's cousin, in The Facts of Life. His first regular series role was on Knight Rider in 1985, playing "RC3", a.k.a. Reginald Cornelius III, the new mechanic who worked on KITT; he appeared in the fourth and final season of the series.
Thereafter, Parros was cast in several popular American soap operas. He appeared on The Young and the Restless in the recurring role of Leo Baines from 1986-1987, Santa Barbara in 1992, One Life to Live as the second Dr. Ben Price from 1994 until 1995, and on As the World Turns as Dr. Benjamin "Ben" Robert Harris from 1996-2005. Parros also starred in the short-lived The New Adam-12, a spin-off of the 1960s-1970s popular police drama Adam-12, as Officer Gus Grant. In 1990-91, he played the recurring role of firefighter Eddie Cooper on the CBS comedy The Family Man.
He owns the production company, Ten Talents Productions, which produces television shows for the Black Family Channel. Parros also occupies his time with the "Faith in Action" program, which supports development of new farming techniques, reforestation of land, and other agricultural projects, which promote growth and prosperity in Haiti.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
