James Olson (born October 8th, 1930) is an american actor from Evanston, Illinois and graduate of Northwestern University who did stage work in and around Chicago before his 1956 film debut in The Sharkfighters . From that point, he continued to appear in numerous film and television productions all the way through the early nineties.
Olson's television appearances include guest roles on countless shows including episodes of Kraft Television Theater, Murder She Wrote, Little House On The Prairie, Hawaii Five-O, Battlestar Galactica, Lou Grant, The Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, Mannix, Bonanza, Police Woman, Barnaby Jones and Maude, among many others.
Despite being a likeable onscreen presence and turning in consistently solid performances through the years, Olson never achieved top Hollywood status. He has apparently completely dropped from the acting scene.
