Actor. Born John Brasselli in Elyria, Ohio, he was a film-television performer, also a producer and author. A veteran of over thirty films, he was most noted for the role as Earl Eastman in "A Place In the Sun" (1951) and for the lead role as Eddie Cantor in "The Eddie Cantor Story" (1953). In the summer of 1963 he starred in a brief TV series called "The Keefe Brasselle Show" and in 1964, he produced a few new TV series such as "The Report", which were eventually canceled due to poor ratings in 1965. He also appeared on "The Ford Television Theatre", "The Phil Silvers Show", "The Red Skelton Hour" and "Adam-12". He later wrote the novels "The CanniBalls" (1968), followed by "The Barricudas" (1973). He died at age 58 in Downey, California.
