The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

“Brady Bunch” Guest Actor Dies at 82

written by Eric Greenberg in Blog | 2 comments

Actor Paul Sorensen, who played the recurring role of oil cartel member Andy Bradley on “Dallas” has passed away at the age of 82. Sorensen made appearances in countless TV series including “Mary Tyler Moore,” “Gunsmoke,” and “Barnaby Jones.” Around here though, he’ll always be remembered as Buddy Hinton’s dad in the classic Brady episode “A Fistful of Reasons.”

As Barry recalled in “Growing Up Brady:” Rotten little Buddy Hinton makes Cindy cry by mocking her lisp. Peter tries talking with the little bully but only gets a black eye for his trouble. When Mike and Carol try talking to Buddy’s parents, they turn out to be big bullies, leaving Mike with only one option: teach Peter the fine art of beating the crap out of a guy.”

It may have been a brief appearance, but it was a memorable one, and Sorensen played it well. Condolences to his family from “The Greg Brady Project.”

Ceil Cabot, who played Mrs. Hinton, passed away in 2000.

    I offer my condolences to the family, even though they’re very delayed in forthcoming. I don’t know who played the Buddy Hinton role, but he did a good job. LOL! I can remember being so angry I threw something at the tv and got grounded!
