The details


Monte Markham (born June 21, 1935) is an American actor. He has appeared in films, television series and on Broadway.

Early life

Markham was born in Manatee County, Florida, the son of Millie Content (née Willbur) and Jesse Edward Markham Sr., who was a merchant.

He attended Palm Beach State College.


Of his television roles, Markham is perhaps most famous for playing the dual role of Luke and Ken Carpenter in the 1967–68 ABC sitcom The Second Hundred Years, and as Harry Kellem in the original Hawaii Five-O. In 1969 -70, Markam starred in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, a television series based on the 1936 movie. Another of Markham's best known roles was as the racing-car-driver-turned-cyborg Barney Miller in the second-season episode of The Six Million Dollar Man entitled "The Seven Million Dollar Man", which first aired November 1, 1974. (Markham reprised the role—albeit with a character name change to Barney Hiller—in the third-season episode "The Bionic Criminal", which first aired just over a year later, on November 9, 1975). He appeared as Blanche Devereaux's brother Clayton Hollingsworth on the NBC sitcom The Golden Girls, and portrayed the criminally insane character Pike in the episode "Power Play" in the 1975 revival of The Invisible Man. From 1989 to 1992, he played the role of Captain Don Thorpe, senior lifeguard on Baywatch.


One of his earliest stage experiences was at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in the summer of 1961, where he played Horatio in Hamlet. Markham made his Broadway debut in 1973 in Irene, for which he won the Theatre World Award. He also appeared on stage in Same Time, Next Year.


Markham's film work includes Hour of the Gun, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, Midway, Airport 77, and We Are Still Here. He has served as a consultant, director, producer, and narrator for A&E's Classroom, The Great Ships and Air Combat series.
