In the mid-1970s, Tucker toured with the Roy Radin Vaudeville Revue, a variety show in which he was featured telling Irish tales and singing Irish folk songs. Theatrical producer Roy Radin was later the victim in the so-called "Cotton Club Murder." Movie producer Robert Evans, who was producing The Cotton Club (1984) at the time of his brutal killing, had been in contact with Radin as a potential investor in the film.

Left acting to join the army during World War II, and eventually became a 2nd Lt. After the war he resumed his acting career.

Played semi-pro football in Arlington, Virginia, USA.



Tucker was a 1938 graduate of Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, VA. Other alumni include Shirley MacLaine, Warren Beatty and Sandra Bullock.
