James Gregory Overview:

Character actor, James Gregory, was born on Dec 23, 1911 in The Bronx, NY. Gregory died at the age of 90 on Sep 16, 2002 in Sedona, AZ .


James Gregory's film career was slow to start after he switched from stockbroking to acting in the post-war years, but in later days he became one of television's most frequent and efficient guest stars in drama series. His gruff voice and soothing manner often concealed villainous instincts, but he also played friendly advisers and unbending superiors. He made up for his late start by notching up almost 40 years as an actor.
