Alan North


Dead-pan actor whose career dated back to TV's Golden Age of live drama during the 1950's. It wasn't until the 1980's, however, that North garnered any regular series roles, primarily those of authority figures in TV sitcoms. His best known role was that of Captain Ed Hocken, Frank Drebin's boss in the short-lived but well-remembered cult sitcom, Police Squad! [George Kennedy played Hocke
