Perhaps best known for playing Officer Grossman in NBC's late 1970s and early 1980s series CHiPs, this New York-born actor also appeared in episodes of Three's a Crowd, The Waltons, and M*A*S*H*.
He grew up immersed in show business: his father, Richard Linke, was actor Andy Griffith's manager.
He directed and wrote a play titled Save it for the Stage: The Life of Reilly. The piece became the basis for the 2006 movie The Life of Reilly.
His first marriage -- to musician Francesca Draper -- resulted in children named Rose, Ryan, and Jasper, and ended with Draper's 1986 death from cancer. Following their 1991 wedding, he and his second wife, Christine Healy, welcomed a child named Lily.
He played the role of Collins Hedgeworth in the 1977 Ron Howard film Grand Theft Auto.
