PLAY IT TO THE BONE
ROBERT WAGNER (Hank Goody) is one of the most popular and successful stars in the entertainment industry boasting three hit series and an impressive list of both feature and television films.
As a young man under contract to 20th Century Fox, Wagner was cast by Darryl F. Zanuck in "With A Song In My Heart." Although the part lasted but a scant minute, his performance as a crippled soldier responding to the song of Susan Hayward brought immediate public reaction back to the studio. Spencer Tracy saw him in "Beneath The Twelve Mile Reef" and requested Wagner for the role of his son in "Broken Lance." A small sample of his numerous film credits include "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story," "The Pink Panther," "The Curse Of The Pink Panther," "Midway," "The Towering Inferno," "Banning" and "Harper." He recently recreated his role of "Number Two," the villainous henchman to Dr. Evil, the arch enemy of Mike Myers' title character in "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me." Wagner was also directed by Antonio Banderas in "Crazy In Alabama." Last year, the actor was in "Wild Things," starring Matt Dillon and Kevin Bacon.
On television, Wagner has starred in three long running series, "It Takes A Thief," "Switch" and "Hart To Hart." Since the end of the regular run of the series, the actor has produced eight "Hart To Hart" movies for both NBC and cable's Family Channel. He also starred with Jaclyn Smith in the top-rated miniseries "Windmills Of The Gods," based on Sidney Sheldon's best-selling novel; with Angie Dickinson in the miniseries "Pearl," with Audrey Hepburn in "Here A Thief, There A Thief," with Lesley Anne Down in "Indiscreet" and with Elizabeth Taylor in "There Must Be A Pony," which he also executive produced. Wagner was chosen by Sir Laurence Olivier to star with him in the television adaptation of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," in which he co-starred with his wife, the late Natalie Wood.
In addition to all his film and television ventures, Wagner tours the U.S. with his wife Jill St. John, on stage in A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters."
