He appeared in a 1959 Perry Mason episode “The case of the Deadly Toy” as love interest to the defendant Claire Allison as Dick Benedict. He also starred in the 1961 Perry Mason episode "The Case of the Misguided Missile" as an Air Force officer court-martialled on a murder charge.

He also played Sam Thompson in Thompson's Ghost, Tom Bennett in The Bill Cosby Show and Officer Russo in Adam-12.


In 1967 he played a littering tourist in the Lassie episode "Lassie's Litter Bit", an iconic episode which earned Lassie a trip to the White House to shake hands with then First Lady "Ladybird" Johnson who had used the famous collie in her Keep America Beautiful Campaign.


Later in his career, he appeared on episodes of Petticoat Junction (1970, episode: "Spare That Cottage", as Norbert Thompson), Growing Pains (1988–1990) and Beverly Hills, 90210 (1993).
