Our upcoming guest is actor Brandon Cruz, best known for his role as Eddie Corbett in the early ’70s comedy television series “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father.” In addition to his acting career, Cruz is also a punk rock musician. We’re thrilled to welcome him to Ken Boxer Live.
Cruz won his breakthrough role in The Courtship of Eddie’s Father at age five, bonding with his television father, Bill Bixby, with whom he co-starred. Later Cruz would say that “Bixby was like my second father.” After Courtship, Cruz made numerous guest appearances in television shows, including The Incredible Hulk, which reunited him with Bixby. Cruz also played the role of Joey Turner, the Yankees pitcher, in the 1976 movie The Bad News Bears.
During the 1980s Cruz turned his attention to music, performing with a hardcore punk band Dr. Know. Since April, 2013, Cruz has been working in the drug and alcohol rehabilitation field in Southern California.
Ken and Tai are eagerly looking forward to meeting and interviewing Cruz. Please join us for this most memorable episode.
