Biography

Born in the tiny town of Muleshoe, TX, actor Lee Horsley started singing in church as a youngster in the Denver area, his vocal talents eventually leading him to tour in stage productions of "West Side Story," "Damn Yankees," "Oklahoma!" and "1776" prior to his arrival in Hollywood. He began his TV career as detective Archie Goodwin (opposite William Conrad) in the 1981 NBC drama series "Nero Wolfe" but is best known for his starring role as the detective "Matt Houston" (ABC, 1982-1985). A true outdoorsman, who enjoys fly fishing and horseback riding and participates in celebrity rodeos and other sporting events, Horsley has lent his six-foot-four-inch rugged good looks to a wide array of TV-movies, including "Agatha Christie's '13 at Dinner'" (CBS, 1985), "Danielle Steele's 'Palomino'" (NBC, 1991) and "The Corpse Had a Familiar Face" (CBS, 1994), as well as two ABC miniseries, "North and South: Book II" and "Crossings" (both 1986), adapted from the best-selling novel by Danielle Steele.
