Occupation Actor

Robert Lansing (June 5, 1928 – October 23, 1994) was an American stage, film, and television actor.

Life and career[edit]

Born in San Diego, California, as Robert Howell Brown, he reportedly took his acting surname from the state capital of Michigan. As a young actor in New York City, he was hired to join a stock company in Michigan but was told he would first have to join the Actors' Equity Association. Equity would not allow him to join as "Robert Brown" because another actor was using that name. Because the stock company was based in Lansing, this became the actor's new surname.[citation needed]

In the 1961–1962 television season, Lansing was cast as Detective Steve Carella on NBC's 87th Precinct series based on the Ed McBain detective novels. His costars were Gena Rowlands, Ron Harper, Gregory Walcott, and Norman Fell. In 1961, he played the outlaw Frank Dalton in a two-part episode of NBC's The Outlaws with Barton MacLane. Also in 1961, he played Jed Trask, a troubled shooter, in the Bonanza episode, "Cutthroat Junction." [1] He played the frontier dentist, gambler, and gunfighter Doc Holliday in an episode of NBC's The Tall Man, with Barry Sullivan and Clu Gulager. Again on NBC, in 1966, Lansing guest starred as General Custer in a three episode segment of Branded called "Call to Glory".

On film, Lansing starred in the science fiction film 4D Man (1959). He also starred as marine biologist Hank Donner in the 1966 nature drama film Namu, the Killer Whale, which featured one of the first orcas ever displayed in captivity.[2] His other films included An Eye for an Eye (1966), It Takes All Kinds (1969), The Grissom Gang (1971), Bittersweet Love (1976), Scalpel (aka False Face) (1977), S*H*E (1980), and monster movies such as Empire of the Ants (1977), Island Claws (1980) and The Nest (1988).

Other television roles include portrayals of an alcoholic college professor in ABC's drama Channing, as General George Custer on Chuck Connors's NBC series Branded, as Gil Green in the 1963 episode "Fear Begins at Forty" on the NBC medical drama The Eleventh Hour, as General Frank Savage for the first season in 1965 of Twelve O'Clock High, as a bounty hunter on Gunsmoke, as a parole officer in a 1968 episode (A Time to Love - A Time to Cry) of The Mod Squad, and as interstellar secret agent Gary Seven in the episode "Assignment: Earth" (1968) of Star Trek. The episode was an unsuccessful pilot for a new series which would have starred Lansing and Teri Garr.

Lansing played an international secret agent in The Man Who Never Was, as Lt. Jack Curtis on Automan. He also played a recurring role, Control, on 29 episodes of The Equalizer between 1985 and 1989.[3] He guest starred in The Twilight Zone episode "The Long Morrow" and in the Thriller episode "Fatal Impulse." He also guest starred on other television productions such as NBC's Law & Order. His final role was that of Paul Blaisdell on Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.

Personal life[edit]

Lansing had a son, Robert Frederick Orin Lansing, with his first wife, actress Emily McLaughlin; the couple eventually divorced. About a year and a half later, he married Gari Hardy, but this marriage also ended in divorce. The couple had a daughter, Alice Lucille Lansing. His last wife was Anne Pivar, with whom he remained until his death from cancer in 1994, aged 66. He was buried at Union Field Cemetery in Ridgewood, Queens.

Broadway roles[edit]

  • Stalag 17 (1951) as Dunbar (replacement)
  • Finishing Touches (1973) as Jeff Cooper
  • The Little Foxes (1981) as Benjamin Hubbard (replacement)
