Happily Divorced

Robert Wagner

TV Land welcomes Robert Wagner to the cast of the hit series Happily Divorced in the role of Douglas, Elliot's (D.W. Moffett) father, Elizabeth's (Florence Henderson) husband, and future father in law to Fran (Fran Drescher).

Robert Wagner was born on February 10th, 1930 in Detroit, Michigan. When he was seven years old, his family headed west to Los Angeles. From a young age Robert dreamed of becoming an actor, and worked a series of odd jobs (including caddying for Clark Gable) in order to make ends meet. However it was not until a chance encounter in a restaurant in Beverly Hills while dining with his parents that Wagner was "discovered" by a talent scout and signed to a contract with a major film studio.

From there Wagner enjoyed a burgeoning film career and logged credits in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, The Pink Panther, and All the Fine Young Cannibals.

Not content with simply a film career, Wagner also enjoyed television success. His turn in It Takes a Thief as Alexander Mundy, Fred Astaire's son, garnered him an Emmy nomination. His work as an actor/producer saw him starring opposite Bette Davis in 1972's Madame Sin. It was while working on Sir Laurence Olivier's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" that he met and costarred with his wife, the late Natalie Wood. Wagner also executive produced Hart to Hart, and his efforts in the role of Jonathan Hart received six Golden Globe nominations and 4 statuettes.

In more recent years Wagner has been seen in the Austin Powers franchise as "Number Two", and competed in Celebrity Poker Showdown. He has also enjoyed guest roles on Hope and Faith, The Simpsons, NCIS, Two and a Half Men, The Merv Griffin Show, Boston Legal and has spent time on the couch alongside Regis Philbin on Live With Regis and Kathie Lee, and The Joey Bishop show.

Wagner enjoys playing golf and spending time with his three daughters Katie, Natasha, and Courtney.
