    That was a good episode. Carlos was more handsome than any of the actors. My sister was very impressed.

    Also The Fall Guy, Perry Mason, Family Affair and a bunch of others, with a key role as Jim in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

    Tex Cobb was in Miami Vice. I think Mark Breland was in the same episode (or two-parter). Of course both had movie roles, especially Cobb.

    Maxie Rosenbloom had a regular role in the Joe Palooka TV series and was seen in a ton of others including The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I Dream of Jeanie and The Donna Reed Show.

    I read about this in an old boxing mag. with stills from the show but had never seen it - Lo and behold, Ytube delivers yet again:-

    Rocky Marciano in the old tv series
    CAPTAIN DAVID GRIEF (‘57 to ‘60). Olivier he ain’t but he’s not awful:-

    I know Tex Cobb was in a lot of things but the only one I remember is Walker, Texas Ranger. Also, I know this is about TV shows but since someone mentioned Ken Norton and Mandingo, I will add that Antonio Tarver was Mason Dixon in one of the Rocky movies.
