John Forsythe is one of television's best dramatic actors and has appeared on most every leading drama show on video. He also has dabbled in athletics both as a participant and as a radio announcer for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

John always had a hankering for the role from the very first time he read Thomas Heggen’s book which served as the basis for the play. It wasn’t until June of 1949 that his dream came true although he was broached on the subject in the fall of 1948.

The handsome actor had other Broadway credits prior to “Mister Roberts” for his appearance in “All My Sons” made him one of the sought-after TV actors.

He has been interested in dramatics for some time. When he attended the University of North Carolina, he joined “The Playmakers”, one of the best dramatics departments among American universities.

Actually it was radio that got him into the theatre. For he was hired by the Brooklyn Dodgers to broadcast the team’s games in the summer. In the winter he branched off into soap operas, and in rapid time he got into the legitimate theatre.
