Morning Man Classic: Peter Brown!
Sadly, I was not familiar with Peter Brown until I read of the boyishly handsome actor’s death last year.
He starred as the eager young deputy Johnny McKay on the 1958-62 ABC series Lawman and played a Texas Ranger on NBC’s Laredo, another TV Western.
From 1972-79, He went on to play Dr. Greg Peters on NBC’s Days of Our Lives and later worked on other soap operas such as The Young and the Restless, Loving, One Life to Live and The Bold and the Beautiful.
His film roles include the 1964 sexploitation flick Kitten with a Whip, the 1964 surfing-buddy movie Ride the Wild Surf, and 1974′s Foxy Brown as a bad guy who is castrated by men hired by the revenge-seeking title character (Pam Grier).
His severed genitals were presented to his girlfriend (Kathryn Loder)!
One of his more recent films was 2001′s The Wedding Planner starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez.
