I just watched him in two of his first movies . I wondered if his pretty face knew cock to get movie work. He was too handsome to be exclusively straight.
OP, I watched those two movies too. I was going to start a thread about him but you beat me to it.
Years ago my sister went to some tropical island on a vacation and met him. She had such a crush on him when she was a teenanger and said he couldn't have been nicer to her.
I googled him and read that he had a confrontation with Lily Tomlin, but later he played gay in a movie.
I'd like to think he was bi. He was married to the same woman for years if that means anything.
I had no idea he had made that many films. He was/is very talented and handsome.
He was funny in "Mulholland Drive"....and still looked pretty good.
I love that movie...totally.
D. Lynch, Mulholland Drive, Hollywood
Any hot young unknown guy in the Hollywood of the 1950s would have had to put out to get a career going.
wait, I thought Chad Everett was known to be gay. Am I mistaken?
He looks great for 75!
"He was too handsome to be exclusively straight."
Yeah, keep telling yourself that.
He also played gay on "Will and Grace" - but then, so did I...
There was an episode of Supernatural a couple of years ago in which Jensen Ackles' character was suddenly aged many years by some supernatural chicanery or other. ElderJensen was played by Chad Everett. What says DL?
I'm thinking he was a gay for gay.
I had a Chad Everett lunch box in the 3rd or 4th grade. It was from some TV show set in Africa or somewhere that had giraffes as those were also featured on the lunch box.
Was that a Daktari lunch box by any chance, r13?
If so, the hot guy was actually Ross Hagen.
I heard he is a Born Again Christian. However, a lot of actors claim they are but they are wishy washy about it, who knows?!
As I recall, Susielee said he was an awful man and you just wouldn't want to meet him because he is completely gross. She never went on further in detail ,but I wonder what he did that she said that?
He was probably gay for free as long as you genuflected before him.
He was masculine beauty perfected when he starred on "Medical Center". I was only a small boy, but just one look at him and I KNEW I was gay...
Like R17, I was a wee lad watching Medical Center and suddenly Chad appeared in one scene in his bachelor pad shirltless and wearing a gold choker around his neck. I early died. It's been all gay all the time for me ever since that life-changing moment.
That scene in Mulholland Drive is sorta played for creepy humor but I stil went home and rubbed one out thinking of him.
My grandmother used to giggle at the big bulge in his scrubs during Medical Center. I was speechless.
Someone said he was one of Keanu's Daddy's. Who knows?
He's dead now so I guess it doesn't matter.
OP - Was one of the first movies " The Chapman Report" , where he played a repairman, and seduces Claire Bloom, in his tight khaki uniform
He was a (self-admitted) alcoholic for years. He looked great, for his age, but think how much better he would have looked without the booze taking it's toll, on his handsome face.
As a budding fairy I always wanted to put Chad Everett over my knee and spank that ample behind of his--oh well, can't spank 'em all. He and Lily Tomlin had a fracas years ago--I imagine she had that Ernestine smile when she heard he started taking the dirt nap.
Was Wilson that guy who handled a lot of gay actors?
I never knew he was an alcoholic.
Of course apparently, actor = alcoholic.
I had read a little about that but I wonder what Lilly was really angry about? Maybe she took him more seriously then she should have or maybe things were just that bad for women, that she felt like she needed to make a statement?
I remember seeing him in a David Niven movie that I'm too lazy to look up.
" The Impossible Years" - made just before he got his role on "Medical Center". Also in it- Christina Ferrari, who made lots of cooking appearances on "Oprah" (she's her neighbor in Santa Barbara), and was married to car maker John DeLorean, during his trial .
Tchad was only OK looking, the only thing you can say about him is he had a good toupee when he was older
WTF ? He did not wear a toupee. Look at the photos of oler Chad more carefully. And he was an amazingly good looking man. Maybe not your type - but handsome is handsome.
I thought he was great in Mulholland Drive. He was also good in Van Sant's Psycho.
hOW ABOUT THAT BULGE IN HIS PANTS IN "CENTENNIAL" UH? MAXWELL MARCY WAS ONE OF MY WET DREAMS AS A TEENAGER...
He had a great ass. In his scrubs on Medical Center, it would jiggle when he would walk away from the camera. As with Robert Conrad, the directors knew they had a hot property in Everett's ass and showcased it on camera, sometimes. Oh, the fantasies I had about Chad Everett's ass.
It's the same on Dexter. Hall has a great ass and they show him walking away from the camara all the time. If the star has the talent, feature it.
Speaking of focusing on actor's asses... It seems every scene Eric Bana is in, he's shown leaving so the camera can follow that fat ass.
In 1972, during an appearance on “The Dick Cavett Show,” he was enumerating his “personal property,” including horses, dogs — and “a wife.” Comedian Lily Tomlin walked off the show in anger
r38, that guy could not shine Chad Everett's shoes. ZERO sex appeal. Chad was a MAN.
I have sometimes thought that a good role for Chad, more in his "prime", would be one of maybe the bum who lives in a trailer/shack at the old fishin' hole who is stoned or drunk alot, wears old gray pants and will do anything you want sexually.
You mean a gay man pretending to be a straight man who fucks men?
What made Lily Tomlin leave the Cavett set was Everett saying his wife was the most beautiful animal he owned.
Yep, that would do it.
He was hot looking, anyway.
Hum...why doesn't someone write a book? He's dead already.
"He was too handsome to be exclusively straight."
But he had a doughy, untoned straight man's body.
If he was doughy, it wasn't for a lack of trying.
My auntie used to see him jogging along the beach in Santa Monica.
He needed weight training to tone up, r45. Besides, you can jog all you want, but with steak and potatoes every night you're chubby.
He also gave my auntie a flirty look, so he wasn't gay.
I knew him, he always said, "Don't play ball in the house."
Actors flirt with everyone, aunties included.
R10 I'm pretty sure Chad was never on W&G. Are you sure you're not thinking of Perry King?
I don't know about the pay deal, but my parents ran a Motel in Pasadena,CA. and he and a "friend" checked in for a quickie.. My mother almost died, she loved him in Medical Center... ! That was even before I really knew what gay meant.. He sure was handsome tho....
Thanks, R5. Those musical montage endings on Cold Case always get me, the gay ones more than the rest. It's one of the only shows whose reruns I've watched.
Thanks for that info R51.
Didn't he share the notoriously gay agent that represented Sal Mineo, Rock Hudson and the rest early in their careers?
