William Katt (Los Angeles, February 16, 1951) is an American film and television actor. His parents are also actors Bill Williams (his real last name was Katt) and Barbara Hale.
He attended tertiary studies at the Orange Coast College (Costa Mesa, California) before pursuing a career as a musician. It was then when he began to act, appearing in theatrical performances in the summer and in small roles on television. His first roles in films include Tommy Ross in the famous horror film Carrie (1976) by Brian De Palma, with Sissy Spacek, and Jack Barlowe in the film by John Milius Big Wednesday (1978), starring alongside Jan-Michael Vincent and Gary Busey on the lives of some young surfers and the effects of the Vietnam War on them.
In 1977 he starred opposite Susan Dey in First Love, a revolutionary romantic film directed by Joan Darling. During this period he starred in several low-budget films (“Class B”) with sexual content.
Katt also appeared for the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars (1977) and can be seen auditioning in many documentaries about this film. In 1979 he played the Sundance Kid in Butch and Sundance: The Early Days, a film about the life of a gunman in the Old West of the United States. In 1981 he played Pippin in the same title film.
The great American hero
Katt got the role of Ralph Hinkley, a gentle high school teacher who was given a flying costume by aliens on the unforgettable television series The Greatest American Hero (literally “The Greatest American Hero”) in 1981 and played this character until the cancellation of the series, in 1983. The title of the series was translated in different ways in America and Spain, being The American superhero or The great American hero some of the titles used. The series told the story of a common man faced with the extraordinary circumstance of becoming a superhero and without even knowing how to properly operate his super suit (Ralph lost the manual with the instructions).
ABC broadcasted the series in the United States. Changes of executives in the chain and divergences on the category of public to which it should be directed (if adults or children) ended up marginalizing The Greatest American Hero at inappropriate times and schedules leading to its subsequent cancellation after three seasons. Despite this, Ralph Hinkley and his adventures reaped great success throughout the world, making The Greatest American Hero (along with Believe It Or Not, its opening theme), one of the most memorable productions of the 1980s Precisely, the character of Ralph Hinkley would become the most famous of Katt’s career.
His career to the present
In 1986 Katt would star in another cult film within the horror / comedy genre, playing the writer Roger Cobb in House. From 1987 onwards, he would play the recurring role of Paul Drake Jr. in Perry Mason’s periodical television films. There he would work with his mother, Barbara Hale, who continued with his role as Della Street in the original series. Katt also incarnated a politician as the main character in the series Top Of The Hill (1989), also participating in Good Sports in (1991). Since then he has participated in several films and television productions such as Walker, Texas Ranger (1998), The Net (1998), JAG (in 2001 and 2004) or House M.D. (2006). So far he has co-written two stories for the cinema, Clean And Narrow 1999 and Descendant (2003) and has directed two films, Clean And Narrow and River’s End (2005).
