The Tragic Death Of The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis Star Dwayne Hickman

Hickman is perhaps best known for his for his role in the American sitcom, “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.” But make no mistake about it, that was not his only acting credit. As reported by Variety, Hickman was bit by the acting bug at a young age and got his start in showbiz with cameos in “The Boy With the Green Hair” and “The Grapes of Wrath.” The aspiring actor then went on to land the role of Chuck MacDonald in “The Bob Cummings Show.” Although Hickman embarked on an economics degree from Loyola University, shortly after earning the degree he picked right back up where he left off snagging roles in “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini,” “Ski Party” and “Cat Ballou.”  

Along with acting, Hickman also enjoyed working behind the scenes as evidenced by his career as a network executive at CBS Television wherein he worked on”Maude,” “M*A*S*H,” and “Designing Women” starring actor Delta Burke. In 1994, he also forayed into the world of writing with the launch of his very own book aptly titled, “Forever Dobie: The Many Lives of Dwayne Hickman.” Is there anything Hickman couldn’t do? RIP.
