Actor. One of the movie industry's famous "beach boy" actors, this native of Atlantic City, New Jersey became a Hollywood heartthrob as a star of the 1960 television show, "The Aquanauts". During his career he guest starred in about one hundred television shows and appeared in no less than twenty movies. The versatile actor could perform many different roles but he was most famous for his tough guy portrayals. He co-wrote and starred in the biker film "Hell's Angels 69". He also appeared in "True Grit", "Girls! Girls! Girls!" and "The Born Losers". From 1979 to 1987 he starred in the popular American soap opera "One Life to Live". His knack for adventure was seen outside his acting career as well. At the age of sixteen he joined the United States Navy and was barely eighteen when his destroyer joined the WWII D-day invasion at Omaha Beach. As a young family man he moved to Lima, Peru to work for a steamship line. While there he began acting with a local theater group. His appearance in the play "The Rainmaker" won him the Peruvian equivalent to the United States' Tony Award. After a year of training he left Peru to begin what became a flourishing full time acting career. Slate was also a successful songwriter with two of his country songs, "Just beyond the Moon" and "Every Time I Itch (I Wind up Scratchin' You)" becoming top ten hits. He died in Los Angeles, California. Cause of death: Cancer  (bio by: Bigwoo)
