William Katt is best known as the star of The Greatest American Hero, playing Ralph Hinkley, a mild-mannered schoolteacher given a super powered suit by aliens. However, his first role was that of Tommy Ross, the ill-fated prom date of Carrie White in the film version of Stephen King’s Carrie (1976), alongside Sissy Spacek. He subsequently starred in films such as First Love (1977), Big Wednesday (1978) and Butch and Sundance: The Early Days (1979). Following the success of The Greatest American Hero, William starred in Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend (1985), the cult horror/comedy film House (1986) (reprising his role for the third sequel, House IV in 1992), and played the recurring role of detective Paul Drake Jr. in the periodic Perry Mason TV movies of the late eighties (collaborating on some of the later scripts). In 1989 Katt starred in the TV series Top of the Hill. In recent years William has made appearances in Heroes (as a nosy reporter investigating Ali Larter’s character) , Batman: The Brave and the Bold (Hawkman), Andromeda, Justice League and in films such as Gamers (2006), The Man from Earth (2007), Alien vs Hunter (2007) and Super (2010).

Katt has also written a Greatest American Hero comic book and contributed to that series’ Facebook page. Hardcore Star Wars fans will know that in 1975 Katt auditioned for the part of Luke Skywalker; footage of his audition has been featured in many Star Wars documentaries.
