Biography

Balding, solidly built character actor John Doucette brought his deep voice and admirable skill to an enormous range of film and TV roles from the late '40s through the '70s. His first film role was in the 1943 drama "Two Tickets to London." The Army draft interrupted that job, and Doucette served in World War II, eventually under General Patton (He would later appear in the famed biopic "Patton" as well). After the war, Doucette stepped firmly into features, often in small parts, gaining stature as both menacing villains and distinguished figures of authority. In over 100 film appearances, he ran the gamut of genres from the gritty noir "Criss Cross" to the superhero serial "Batman and Robin" and the period drama "Cleopatra." As the '50s progressed, he spent much of his time on the small screen, including a regular part in the crime saga "Lock Up," and in countless guest spots on Westerns such as "Bonanza" and "The Virginian." Doucette appeared frequently on "Get Smart" and so impressed Don Adams that he landed a full-time part on Adams' short-lived cop-comedy follow-up, "The Partners." A friend of screen legend John Wayne, Doucette shared four films with the Duke, including 1969's "True Grit."
