Gregory Harrison- from TV Star of the 70s and 80s to Vintage Beefcake

Gregory Neale Harrison was born on May 31, 1950 in Avalon, Catalina Island, California. After HS he served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War as a medic for two years. After two years he received an honorable discharge in 1971 from the Army as a non-religious conscientious objector.

After the army he began working as a doorman for a nightclub. One night while working he met actor Jason Robards who took notice of the young man, and encouraged him to get into acting, as he had the looks for television. Harrison took the words of encouragement as a sign and quit his job and moved to LA immediately. He began taking acting lessons as well as vocal and dance, and began working in theatre and musical theatre. In 1973 he booked his first job, as one of the students in “The Harrad Experiment”, an uncredited extra role. In 1975 he booked his first speaking role, with a role in “Trilogy of Terror”. He would do another film and a few guest spots on television, but it was him landing a guest spot on the super-hit series “MASH” in 1976 that would help him get more steady work.

After appearing in one episode of “MASH” in 1976 he was cast in a role in the film “Fraternity Row” and then a supporting role in the TV film “The Gathering” in 1977. After that he was cast as the lead of the TV series “Logan’s Run” that same year. The series only lasted 14 episodes before being canceled in early 1978.

In 1978 he was cast in a supporting role in the hit mini-series “Centennial”. In 1979 he would land the role that would be his most successful, one of the lead roles of the hit CBS series “Trapper John, MD”. The series was a spinoff of MASH. He would star in that series for over 6 years, leaving midway through season 7. While on the show he starred in numerous television films, but most notably he was the lead of the tv movie “For Ladies Only” in 1981, a tv movie about a man from Iowa who moves to NYC to become an actor but becomes a stripper to make money when he goes broke. The film gave him a huge following with women and gay men. In 1986 he starred in the miniseries “Fresno”, playing a character that spoofed his character in “For Ladies Only”.

After “Trapper John, MD” he did more small films and tv movie before jointing “Falcon Crest” in 1989, in what would be its final season. In 1990 he starred in his own sitcom “The Family Man”, which was canceled after one season despite CBS trying to build it an audience. Throughout the 90s and 00s he would star in many tv movies and do many guest spots on tv shows. In 1994 he joined the series “Sisters” for one season.

In 2020 he joined the cast of General Hospital as Gregory Chase.

He played Billy Flynn in a touring production of Chicago, and he was the male lead in each film of the Au Pair trilogy. He also appeared as Benjamin Stone in the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies and starred in the original Broadway production of Kander & Ebb's musical Steel Pier.

He has been married for over 40 years and has three daughters and one son via adoption.

In the 80s he fell deep into alcoholism and became a cocaine addict. He entered himself into the Betty Ford Center for help.

Gorgeous. Teenage me frequently looked longingly at the VHS copy of FOR LADIES ONLY in the local video store, yearning to have the courage to rent it. Happily, it turned up on cable, so I eventually got to see it. What other film can boast mother-daughter DL faves Lee Grant AND Dinah Manoff, plus Patti Davis (did she ever make another movie?) AND Viveca Lindfors?

I’ve always enjoyed his looks and personality, and I’m a lesbian. I admire his beauty as I would admire art.

I’ve often wondered if he and Randi Oakes have had a rainbow marriage. I get such a vibe. Again, he’s so beautiful, and she has always seemed so butch.

No. He never seemed gay and seemed happy in his marriage. If you’re a lesbian you know butch doesn’t equal lesbian.

Breathtaking. I’d watch his shower snippet in the opening credits from Trapper John, MD religiously, though I had scant interest in the actual show.

Some nice pics at link from the always reliable Poseidon’s Underworld.

In other words, r19 just discovered him through this post and is now lying through his teeth (like he always does). Hence him googling all these images and looking for nudes after initially criticizing his looks.

Make it make sense.

I remember him from a tv movie with Cybill Shephard. He also did a gay AIDS movie with Eric Roberts in the 90s.

I think he was on One Tree Hill for a bit too.

R34 sure…. Anyway.

As someone who ACTUALLY remembers him, I liked the Logans Run series. I saw it in the 90s on VHS recordings and it was campy fun. I loved the opening theme. It was actually a cool show. It’s a shame it got canceled after just 14 episodes.

Ironically, I never watched the film that came before the show.

Greg truly remains one of my all time favorites. A truly gorgeous man. I'm happy that he found his wife Randi Oakes and they have remained married since 1980. The only real blemish he had was his drug addiction to cocaine. It's great that he finally was able to give it up by going to rehab. Too many people in the late 1970s - mid 1990s got hooked on that shit. They start doing it recreationally and then find that they depend on it.

by Anonymousreply 39May 14, 2024 1:55 AM

R39, you have good taste. I read he moved out of LA so his kids wouldn't be raised in a town where people flip each other off from their cars.

I've met him a few times; he's humble and polite. I liked him as Michael Sharpe on the last season of Falcon Crest; an otherwise miserable final season due to the death of Maggie.

I don’t know why you’re conflating me with those first two. As for my comment, I was referring to the title of that movie, not to Harrison. Get back on your meds before you hurt yourself or someone else.

Harrison also had a supporting role in the gay film Fair Haven, where he played the homophobic doctor who runs a gay conversion therapy camp.

He's probably hetero-romantic and just bisexual enough to enjoy his gay admiration and gay culture. Who knows how much dick it involved, and who cares? Seems he's fine with men desiring him, and that's good enough.

He was definitely part of my sexual awakening. I remember slipping into the back of Spencer's at the mall and finding the poster of him in his speedo. I would pretend to be selecting a poster but would just stare at Gregory. Manly. Just the right amount of hair. And a great body. Judging from the photo of him at 74, I'd suck him dry. May take a while but I'd give it the old college try.
