After one year as the inept Gomer, Nabors was offered his own series named after the character. Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. featured simpleton Gomer as a private in the Marines whose naivete' always led him to success at the expense of his frustrated Sergeant. Nabors was also an accomplished singer. He released more than 28 albums, five of which went gold and one platinum. After Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., Jim's acting career took a backseat to his music and his nightclub act. He still managed to appear in the Saturday morning series The Lost Saucer, as well as the feature films The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Stroker Ace and Cannonball Run 2. Nabors currently lives in Hana, Hawaii; he continues to record albums and perform his musical nightclub act.
