Reb Brown

Reb Brown is an American former football player and actor. He is perhaps best known for playing the lead in two made-for-TV films Captain America and Captain America II: Death Too Soon during the late 1970's, part of the same development deal that yielded the Lou Ferrigno vehicle, The Incredible Hulk. He is also known for the action war film Uncommon Valor, the 1983 cult classic Yor, the Hunter from the Future, and the Sci-Fi film Space Mutiny. He did collaborations with director Bruno Marrei in the films Strike Commando and Robowar.

In the film, Big Wednesday (1978), Brown played the role of "Enforcer".

Critical acclaim for Brown came in the 1986 Australian film, Death of a Soldier, which was based on a true story. Starring James Colburn. Brown received a

nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Dramatic Role by the Australian Film Institute for his portrayal of a serial killer, Private Edward Leonski. Brown later starred with Lou Ferigno playing Vietnam War veteran/buddies in a pair of action films Cage (1989) and Cage II (1994). Brown has continued his career moving between television and feature films. In television, Reb has appeared in episodes of Miami Vice, Three's Company, CHiPs, The Six Million Dollar Man and Kojak.

In 1978, Reb made a guest appearance on a CBS/Paramount series, The Ted Knight Show, where he met his future wife Cisse Cameron.

Cisse was a series regular. Since Reb does not believe in mincing words, he walked up to Cisse and said, You don't know it yet, but I am

going to marry you." They married a year later, September 8, 1979, and are still happily married 40 years later!
