Greene was born in San Francisco, California, the son of Gladys (Pugh) and Harry Greene.[1] Early in his career, Greene was frequently featured in westerns, and was credited with over 100 television and film appearances, including the 1962 film This is Not a Test (as Mike Green),[2] as well as a leading role in the 1973 film The Clones. He played Jimmy Hart, William Petersen's ill-fated partner in To Live and Die in L.A.. He is perhaps best remembered in his co-starring role as Deputy U.S. Marshal Vance Porter in the short-lived ABC-Warner Brothers western series The Dakotas, where he co-starred with Larry Ward, Jack Elam, and Chad Everett .[3] a series that was controversially cancelled by ABC after only 19 episodes were aired during 1963 .[4]
