      William Ragsdale

      William Ragsdale

      Highest Rated: 83% Fright Night (1985)

      Lowest Rated: 8% The Reaping (2007)

      Birthday: Jan 19, 1961

      Birthplace: El Dorado, Arkansas, USA

      This stage-trained young leading man of middle-budget genre films and TV sitcoms hails from El Dorado, Arkansas. William Ragsdale has been quite convincing as a nice small town boy fitfully adjusting to the complexities of big city life in Fox's cultish sitcom, "Herman's Head" (1991-94) and as the overprotective widower raising his young son who also takes in his disreputable football star sibling in ABC's family comedy "Brother's Keeper" (1998-99). The wholesome and boyishly handsome young actor had a solid New York theater background before turning to film and TV. Ragsdale appeared on stage in the leading role of Eugene in the Broadway production of Neil Simon's "Biloxi Blues" and continued the same role in the conclusion of Simon's autobiographical trilogy, "Broadway Bound," leading the show's national touring company.
