Before Stacy Harris was a familiar face, he was a well-known voice. Hailing from the golden age of radio, he was a fixture on some of the best-known series for that medium, particularly in the role of upright F.B.I. agent Jim Taylor in the procedural "This Is Your FBI" (1948). With the dawn of the TV era, Harris was a natural to work in the exciting new medium--he had a microphone-ready voice and camera-friendly good looks. As a result, he made over 100 appearances in various series, usually appearing as either a heavy or a man of the law. Considerably aiding his career was his friendship with producer/actor Jack Webb, the heavyweight behind the various iterations of the sturdy police drama "Dragnet" (1951), among other well-known shows. Outside of the Webb universe, Harris put in appearances--often as multiple characters--in popular fare of the era such as "Bonanza" (1960) and "Perry Mason (1958). The actor was no less busy in films. He lent his distinctive timbre to a voice role in the hit Steve McQueen crime drama "Bullitt" (1968). Appearing on camera, he reprised his starring role of Cajun-spiced Detective Vic Beaujac in the TV series "N.O.P.D." (1956) and in the 1958 movie "New Orleans After Dark." Harris's prolific career was cut short in 1973, when the actor suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of 54.
