Bill Bixby

Bill Bixby, born Wilfred Bailey Bixby, (January 22, 1934 – November 21, 1993) was an American film and television actor, director and frequent game show panelist. His career spanned over three decades; appearing on stage, in motion pictures and TV series. Though perhaps most well known for playing David Bruce Banner opposite Lou Ferrigno on The Incredible Hulk, In 1973, Bixby starred in The Magician. The series was well-liked, but it only lasted one season, likely a victim of the Hollywood writers’ strike of 1973, and high production costs.

An accomplished amateur magician himself, Bixby hosted several TV specials in the mid-1970s which featured other amateur magicians, and was a respected member of the Hollywood magic community, belonging to The Magic Castle.
