Welcome to my website! 

Thank you for the years of continued support.

Biography

Good looks and a couple of television roles helped to give

actor Michael Gray many years in between and

on the covers of "Tiger Beat" magazine.

Born in Chicago, Michael moved to Florida when he was a young boy.

He caught the acting bug in high school,

and eventually made his way to Hollywood.

In 1972, Michael won the role of Ronnie on the

NBC series The Little People,

a charming sitcom that starred Brian Keith

as a pediatrician with a practice on Oahu, Hawaii.

The series was reworked for the second season and retitled

"The Brian Keith Show," and Michael was let go.

Signed to a management deal with Charles Laufer, pubisher of "Tiger Beat," Michael was able to keep a high profile while rounding up

other acting roles. Michael's second series came in 1974,

when he was cast in his signature role,

as Billy Batson on the Saturday

 morning series Shazam.

The series ran for 3 years but was then cancelled due to

increasing production costs.

 

Some of Michael's other credits include:

 

Life with Father

Room 222                            Entertainment Tonight

The Brady Bunch                    MTV's "I Love The 70's"

         Marcus Welby M.D.        VH1 Superheros, Where Are They Now?

      The Flying Nun                E Television, Life After Stardom

                       Dynasty                      The Retro Radio Live Show, 2010

 

Although Michael Gray had all the tools one would expect

to be necessary to build a sturdy career, due to type

casting it became harder for him to make

 a living at his craft.
