Actor
    (April 16, 1938- )
    Born in Chicago, Illinois
    Portrayed David Vincent in The Invaders (1967-68)
    Portrayed Dr. Phil Brewer on General Hospital (1963-65)
    Portrayed Ben Quick on The Long Hot Summer (1965-66)
    Portrayed Nick Hogan on Falcon Crest (1982-83)
    Acted in 'The FBI Story (1959),' 'Doppelganger (1969),' 'Charley One-Eye (1973),' 'Airport 1975 (1974),' 'The Hindenburg (1975),' 'Rush Week (1989),' 'A Beautiful Mind (2001),' and 'Broken English (2007)'
    He was married four times and divorced three.
    He was cast to play Arthur Adamson in Alfred Hitchcock's last film, but was replaced after William Devane - the first choice for the role - became available (although Hitchcock claimed it was because he was dissatisfied with the performance).
    The firing was so unceremonious that he confronted Hitchcock at a crowded Chasen's restaurant to ask the director why he was fired. Hitchcock nonchalantly stared at him without answering until the actor left (no footage exists of his performance).
    He has a decades-long career on film and television but is only remembered for his stint on The Invaders, which attained a cult following after its cancellation.
    He received roughly 1,500 fan letters per week during his time on 'The Long Hot Summer.'
    He met his wife Lynn Loring on The Invaders show - they were married for over fifteen years and had two kids together.
    TV Guide placed his David Vincent role at #6 on its 25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends list.
    He was in the pilot episode of Law & Order as District Attorney Alfred Wentworth, but by the time the show was picked up, he was contractually obligated to another TV series. His character was replaced with Steven Hill/Adam Schiff (his show - a Dark Shadows reboot - didn't last a season).
    He has maintained an interest in UFO-related information since his time on The Invaders.
