Biography

While his younger brother Dwayne found fame on television, Darryl Hickman first displayed his credentials on the big screen in classic fare like "The Grapes of Wrath" (1940), "The Human Comedy" (1943), and "Leave Her to Heaven" (1945). Hickman was seen steadily on motion picture screens throughout the 1940s and '50s and his work was consistently competent, but he did not become a major star in that medium. However, unlike many performers, Hickman proved remarkably resilient, earning additional credits on radio and television, while also furthering his education and serving in the military. When his TV series "The Americans" (NBC, 1961) failed to find an audience, Hickman turned to stage work and appeared for over a year on Broadway in the smash hit "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" (1961-65). Additionally, he revealed his proficiency as a mover and shaker behind the scenes via a successful term as a CBS programming executive. A stint as an acting instructor in the 1970s proved inspirational for Hickman and he found yet another outlet for his talents, establishing himself as one of the most enduring and respected professionals in that field. Ultimately, his brother became more of a household name and nostalgia favorite, but the multi-talented Darryl Hickman eclipsed him by way of his incredible ambition which helped him become one of the entertainment industry's true renaissance men.
