He was born Conrad John Schuck in Boston, Massachusetts in 1940, the son of an English professor who took several teaching positions including Princeton College and SUNY Buffalo while John was growing up. Following graduation from Denison University where he appeared in a number of plays, John turned to regional theatre for work, including the Cleveland Playhouse, Baltimore Center Stage, and American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. He was discovered at ACT for film by film director Robert Altman (I), who featured him as "Painless", the dentist in the now-cult classic film MASH (1970). Altman continued to use John in Brewster McCloud (1970), McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971), and most assuredly in Thieves Like Us (1974), arguably his best film role. On TV, Schuck won a regular part as a sergeant on "McMillan & Wife" (1971) opposite Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James for six seasons. Most of his work, however, seemed mired in playing dim, simple-minded characters such as the robot on the silly short-lived comedy "Holmes and Yo-Yo" (1976) and as Herman Munster on "The Munsters Today" (1988), a revisit to the ghoulish 60s TV family. More challenging guest role work has come to him on occasion with shows such as "NYPD Blue" (1993) and "Babylon 5" (1994). In the popular films Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), John has earned himself a place in the hearts of Trekkie fans all over the nation. The musical stage in the last few decades has also taken a precedence. For decades now, John has appeared regularly as the gruff-speaking "Daddy Warbucks" in the musical "Annie" not only on Broadway but on tours and in smaller theater venues such as the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera. He also had much success playing "Frank Butler" in "Annie Get Your Gun" with Bernadette Peters on tour. Other musical roles in "The Sound of Music", "Peter Pan", "The Most Happy Fella" and "She Loves Me" also appear on his active resume. A sailor on the sly, John lives with his second wife, painter "Harrison Houle", in California.

  • After _"McMillan & Wife" (1971)_ (qv)'s fifth season, his contract expired and he thought the show would be canceled, so he accepted an offer from producer 'Leonard Stern' (qv) to take the lead in Stern's _"Holmes and Yo-Yo" (1976)_ (qv) series. When _"McMillan & Wife" (1971)_ (qv) returned in a scaled-down version as "McMillan" (also produced by Stern), Schuck's character returned to that show as well, appearing briefly in each episode (it was explained that the character, Sgt. Charles Enright, had received a promotion and a transfer away from the Commissioner's office, but still dropped in on his old boss).
  • For the touring play "Annie" he is using the name Conrad John Schuck.
  • Is one of only 32 actors or actresses to have starred in both the original Star Trek (up to and including _Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)_ (qv)) and then in one of the spin offs.
  • He is the first actor ever to use the f-word in a major motion picture (M*A*S*H).
