With a larger than life presence both onscreen and off, Dan Blocker was a television legend for his role of Hoss Cartwright for 13 seasons of the 1960s Western television series "Bonanza" (NBC 1959-1973) until his untimely death in 1972. While Blocker would go on to appear in films and play other characters, he was inseparable from his role on one of the longest running series on television.
