Clint Walker

Norman Eugene "Clint" WalkerNorman Eugene “Clint” Walker (born May 30, 1927) is an American actor best known for his cowboy role as “Cheyenne Bodie” in the TV Western series, Cheyenne.
Walker was born in Hartford, Illinois; he was a twin. He left school to work at a factory and on a river boat, then joined the United States Merchant Marine at the age of seventeen in the last months of World War II. After leaving the Merchant Marine, he labored at odd jobs in Brownwood, Texas, Long Beach, California, and Las Vegas, where he worked as a doorman at the Sands Hotel. He also was employed as a sheet-metal worker and a nightclub bouncer.
In Los Angeles, he was hired by Cecil B. DeMille to appear in The Ten Commandments. A friend in the film industry helped get him a few bit parts that brought him to the attention of Clint Walker nudeWarner Bros., which was developing a western style television series.
Walker’s good looks and imposing physique—he is one-quarter Cherokee descent, stands 6 feet, 6 inches (198 cm) tall, with a 48-inch chest and a 32-inch waist —landed him an audition, and he won the lead role. Billed as “Clint” Walker, he was cast as Cheyenne Bodie, a cowboy hero in the post-American Civil War era. While the series regularly capitalized on Walker’s rugged frame with frequent bare-chested scenes, it was well-written and acted. It proved hugely popular for eight seasons on the ABC television network.
Walker then played roles in several big-screen films, including a trio of westerns for Gordon Douglas – Fort Dobbs in 1958, Yellowstone Kelly in 1959, and Gold of the Seven Saints in 1961, the comedy Send Me No Flowers in 1964, The Night of the Grizzly in 1966, and as the meek convict Samson Posey, in the war drama The Dirty Dozen in 1967. In 1969, New York Times film critic Howard Thompson, in Clint Walker nakedreviewing Walker’s performance in the movie More Dead Than Alive, described the actor as “a big, fine-looking chap and about as live-looking as any man could be. And there is something winning about his taciturn earnestness as an actor, although real emotion seldom breaks through”. In 1958, Thompson described the actor, then starring in Fort Dobbs, as “the biggest, finest-looking Western hero ever to sag a horse, with a pair of shoulders rivaling King Kong’s”.
During the 1970s he returned to television, starring in a number of made-for-TV western films as well as a short-lived series in 1974 called Kodiak. He starred in the made-for-television cult film Killdozer! the same year. In 1998, he acted the voice of Nick Nitro in Small Soldiers.
