Profile Bio Text
Born Robert Perham, Jeremy Slate (February 17, 1926 - November 19, 2006) was an American film and television actor. He became known as one of the more talented members of the 60`s beach boy set and costarred with Ron Ely in the 1960-1961 Ivan Tors series The Aquanauts, which was renamed Malibu Run half-way during its brief run on CBS. The series could not compete successfully in the same time slot as NBC durable Western Wagon Train. He guest starred in nearly 100 television shows and appeared in 20 feature films. From 1979-1987, Slate portrayed Chuck Wilson on the ABC daytime soap opera One Life to Live. Slate appeared nine times on CBS`s Gunsmoke. He also guest starred three times in The Alfred Hitchcock Hour on CBS and then NBC, in Mission: Impossible on CBS, Bewitched on ABC, and My Name Is Earl on NBC. Slate`s acting career included major roles in four outlaw biker films in the late 1960s: The Born Losers (1967), The Miniskirt Mob (1968), Hell`s Belles (1969), and Hell`s Angels `69. As the leader of the Born Losers Motorcycle Club in The Born Losers, Slate is a ruthless yet likable character who takes on Billy Jack. In Hell`s Angels `69 (which he wrote the screen story) Slate played a man who uses the Hell`s Angels as unwitting dupes in a plan to rob a casino in Las Vegas; several real-life members of the Hell`s Angels — including Angels president Ralph "Sonny" Barger, Terry the Tramp and Magoo — had significant speaking roles in the film. Slate broke his leg during filming and never rode a motorcycle again.
He was an accomplished country-and-western songwriter and BMI member. He wrote the lyrics to Tex Ritter`s top ten song "Just Beyond the Moon" and the lyrics for "Every Time I Itch (I Wind Up Scratchin` You)" recorded by Glen Campbell on Capitol Records. He was briefly married to the actress Tammy Grimes and was stepfather to actress Amanda Plummer during this time. In 2004, he attended as a guest at the Western Film Fair in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Stella Stevens, Andrew Prine and Sonny Shroyer. He died in Los Angeles, California, following surgery for cancer.
