About this title


From Wilson, North Carolina, to Hollywood, a fifty year career as one of the best character actors in the business. Here is how it started, and what happened along the way...

In a loving, straightforward narrative style, Bernard Mattox sketches his growing-up years in a small eastern North Carolina town before he hitchhiked to Hollywood in 1949 and became Gregory Walcott.

For most of the next 40 years he was "simply one of the best character actors in the business," appearing in over 50 movies and 300 television shows, and working with scores of talented, and sometimes eccentric, performers. Hollywood Adventures spotlights many of those encounters.

In the process he made hundreds of friends, earned the respect of his peers, met and married his "first love" with whom he reared a family, maintained his Tar Heel roots, and found professional satisfaction and personal fulfillment.

It doesn’t get any better than that.

About the Author:

Gregory Walcott grew up in Wilson, NC, graduated from Charles L. Coon High School in 1946, and, following a hitch in the Army, attended Furman University on a football scholarship.

In 1949 he hitchhiked to Los Angeles where he continued his studies at the Ben Bard School of the Theatre on the G.I. Bill.

Greg has been active in the television and motion picture industry since 1951, with major roles in over 300 television shows and 50 motion pictures. He was featured in such memorable films as Mr. Roberts, and Battle Cry and praised by critics for his co-starring role with Tony Curtis in The Outsider, the epic Marine film about the flag raising on Iwo Jima.

He is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, Actors Equity and the American Federation of Television and Radio Arts.

In 1954 Greg married the former Barbara Watkins of San Diego. They live in Canoga Park, California, and have three children and six grandchildren.
