A former "Marlboro Man," tall, ruggedly handsome actor David McLean spent most of his career on television. During the summer of 1960, McLean starred in the short-lived western Tate, the saga of a one-armed gunfighter. McLean has guest-starred in series ranging from Bonanza to The Streets of San Francisco to That Girl. Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, McLean began acting on stage, first in Ohio, then in Los Angeles. While in Southern California, McLean supported himself by working as a cartoonist and a sketch artist. In 1961, he was cast in his first feature film, Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. His other film credits include The Andromeda Strain (1971), X-15 (1961), Kingdom of the Spiders (1977) and Death Sport (1978), his final film. In addition to acting, McLean was also the commercial spokesperson for Great Western Savings.
