American actor, tall and handsome, best known for the TV series "Scarecrow and Mrs. King," 1983. He began acting after high school and his good looks and friendly manner helped him get his foot in the door to start with small roles. In 1972 he moved to Los Angeles where he played bit parts on various series. He appeared in the TV movie "The MaCahans," 1976 and it's sequel, "How the West Was Won," 1977. His role was more prominent in the "The Last Convertible," 1979 and "East of Eden," 1981, leading to stardom in his own action series, "Bring 'em Back Alive." The latter bombed, but it did lead to his role as the "Scarecrow."
