BIOGRAPHY:

Born in Brooklyn, the son of Italian immigrant parents, Vince Edwards early aspired to the theater. He was a swimming champion in high school, attended Ohio State University on an athletic scholarship, and was on their National Championship swimming team. Olympics were on the horizon, but an appendicitis operation cut short his swimming career. He studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and then became a contract actor at Paramount Pictures in the early 1950s. In the 1960s he reached his popular peak as the brilliant but confrontational young Dr. Casey in the television series "Ben Casey" (1961)


TRIVIA:
  • 'Bo Jackson (I)' (qv) was named after him.
  • Discovered by 'Bing Crosby' (qv) whose production company made _"Ben Casey" (1961)_ (qv)
  • He has a twin brother, Bob Zoino.
  • Possessed of a pleasant, light tenor voice, he recorded half a dozen albums for American Decca records at the height of his "Ben Casey" popularity, the first of which, "Vincent Edwards Sings," spent several weeks on the top-20 Billboard LP charts in early 1962.
  • Declined the part of "The Doctor" in _Airplane! (1980)_ (qv).
