Jan-Michael Vincent ACTOR


Jan-Michael Vincent was born on July 15th, 1944 in Denver, Colorado, born to parents, Doris and Lloyd Vincent.  He was raised in Hanford, California and after high school he went on to enroll at Ventura College in California.  He then joined the National Guard when a talent scout took notice of him and suggested he become involved in acting.
Vincent 's early career roles were in, "The Bandits" (1967), "The Mystery of the Chinese Junk" (1967) and "Journey to Shiloh" (1968).  It did not take long for a casting agent by the name of Dick Clayton to sign Vincent to a contract with Universal Pictures.  He soon began appearing more frequently on such television series as, "Dragnet" (1968) and "Survivors" (1969) starring Lana Turner and Ralph Bellamy.
Soon he was working in films such as, "The Undefeated" (1969) starring John Wayne and Rock Hudson, "The Mechanic" (1972) starring alongside Charles Bronson, "Airwolf" (1984) starring with Ernest Borgnine, "White Line Fever" (1975), "Baby Blue Marine" (1976), "Big Wednesday" (1978), "The Winds of War" (1983) and "The Devine Enforcer" (1992).
Some of his later roles towards the end of his career were in such features as, "War Nerve" (1991), "Lethal Orbit" (1996) and his final film role was in the independent film, "White Boy" (2002).
In 1996 he suffered a near fatal car accident that left him with permanent vocal chord damage therefore, during the remainder of his career he was left with a raspy voice which ultimately affected his whole acting career. 
Throughout his lifetime he married a total of three times.  His first wife was Bonnie Portman from 1974 through 1975 and together they had one daughter.  He then married, Joanne Robinson in 1986 and this marriage lasted until 1997.  His third wife was Patricia Ann whom he wed in 2000 and they remain together today.  He resides as of 2004 in Redwood, Mississippi on a ranch and as of 2009 he retired from the industry completely.
