Whatever Happened to Van Williams? >> He's ALIVE and STILL LOVES the BLACK BEAUTY >>>
Though he starred in three different TV detective series in five years, Van Williams never really hit the big time. He is best remembered for his lead role as the Green Hornet – a Batman knockoff – that only lasted one season and a series that starred a very young Bruce Lee.
After the demise of the green Hornet, Mr. Williams would land one more series as well as series of cameos but his heart turned towards business where he was quite successful and he became known as the “Banker with a Sting.”
These days, he makes very rare appearances on nostalgia shows, tends to his business interests and spends time with his wife of 50 years.
