MINI BIO:

Young-looking, brown-haired American comedy actor with wry smile who played bright young chaps on whom fortune never smiled until the happy ending. He had a spotty early career, but from 1965 worked for the Disney studio and made a major contribution - his look of hurt bewilderment was second only to that of James Stewart - to most of their biggest comedy hits. Began his career as a blues singer. In 1978 he became a born-again Christian and left show business to work for the charismatic worship movement. He returned to films in 1991.
