MINI BIO:

Appealing American boy actor with dark, curly hair. As a young adult, he offered two excellent performances, in Compulsion and Sons and Lovers, but his star career got away from him in the sixties: some said he was too choosy. Maybe he is just a clever actor who lacks the strength and stature of a superstar. Married to Millie Perkins 1960-1964. An Oscar nominee for Married in the Mob, he won renewed popularity in the 1990s in the TV series Quantum Leap. Brother of actor Guy Stockwell.
