BIOGRAPHY:

Milton Brustin (Mike Road) was born in Malden in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. He got his start as a thespian in school plays while in Malden High School. The acting bug led to him joining a theatre troupe in Boston. His Broadway debut came in the late 1930s in the short-lived play Doodle Dandy of the U.S.A. Due to its short run, he was forced to support himself by doing odd jobs such as usher, waiter, truck driver, delivery man and sign painter.
Mike Road soon returned to acting with a role in the play The Moonvine. His film career had also begun by this time. Between 1943–46, he appeared in Gildersleeve on Broadway, Tender Comrade, Music in Manhattan, Heavenly Days and several other motion pictures.
In 1946, he successfully returned to the stage, playing the lead role in Dear Ruth.
In the late 1950s, his television career also took off. He portrayed Marshal Tom Sellers on the 1958–59 NBC western series Buckskin, co-starring with Sally Brophy and Tom Nolan. Road guest starred twice on Maverick as Bart Maverick's rival Pearly Gates. He was also a regular on the ABC/Warner Brothers detective series Surfside 6, as well as on The Roaring 20s. He later appeared in the series The Alaskans and Lawman, and in other venues: Sea Hunt, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, The Wild, Wild West, and Alias Smith and Jones.
In his two appearances on the western series Colt .45, Road played Jesse James in "Alias Mr. Howard". He was also cast as a bandit-turned-storekeeper in the segment "Arizona Anderson", which aired on February 14, 1960.
As a voice actor, Road remains best known as Race Bannon on Hanna-Barbera's Jonny Quest (1964–1965). During this time, he guest starred as Go-Go Ravine on The Flintstones. He was also the voice of Zandor on The Herculoids (1967), Ugh the Giant Caveman on Space Ghost and Dino Boy (1966), John Butler on Valley of the Dinosaurs (1974), and Reed Richards on The New Fantastic Four in 1978. Road retired from voice acting after reprising his role as Zandor in Hanna-Barbera’s Space Stars in 1981.
Mike Road died on April 14, 2013 at the age of 95 in Los Angeles.


TRIVIA:
