Morning Man Classic: Grant Goodeve!
Remember David Bradford, the dreamy older brother on the classic ABC series Eight Is Enough?
I sure do!
The handsome actor who played him was Grant Goodeve who also sang the theme song on the show which ran from 1977 to 1981.
Now 63, Grant is aging exceptionally well and looks as handsome as he ever did.
When the pilot for Eight is Enough was shot, the role of David was played by Mark Hamill, the actor who went on to play Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars Trilogy. Goodeve took over the role once the show was greenlit as a series.
After the show left the air, Grant appeared for a few years on ABC’s One Life to Live, appeared in several episodes of Murder, She Wrote,and had a recurring role on Norther Exposure.
He also dd guest spots on TJ Hooker, The Love Boat, Dynasty and Fantasy Island and reprised his role of David Bradford in a pair of Eight is Enough TV movies.
More recently, Grant has worked for Home & Garden Television, done voice work and video games and appeared in the films Proud American and Crimes of the Past.
