Andrews was wounded in Sicily while serving in the United States Army during World War II and after returning home, graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York in 1946.


In 1955, Andrews won critical acclaim in the off-Broadway revival of The Threepenny Opera, as the Streetsinger. He reprised the role in San Francisco and Los Angeles, California. Andrews went on to direct The Threepenny Opera in Arizona. While in New York, Director John Ford cast him in the 1955 film version of Mister Roberts after seeing his Broadway performance.


His film career included roles in Onionhead (1958), A Private's Affair (1959), In Enemy Country (1968), The Last Tycoon (1976), and Raid on Entebbe (1977, as Shimon Peres). He retired from acting in the early 1990s after having appeared in more than one hundred acting roles onstage, on film and on television.

His best known roles were Lieutenant Johnny Russo on The Detectives and as Captain Adam Greer on The Mod Squad. For the latter role, he received both an Emmy and a Golden Globe award nomination and won a Logie Award.
