Martin Milner

Fans recognize him as both officer Pete Malloy on the '70s drama Adam 12 and Tod Stiles on the '60s hit Route 66, but Martin Milner wouldn't mind if no one knew him from, well, Adam. "I was never a celebrity—just a working actor," says Milner, 63. Married 38 years to Judy, 60, and a father of four, he says his passions are "family and fishing, in that order." And while he has good memories of his TV days, it wasn't the fame that gratified him. "I got letters from policemen thanking me for Adam 12," recalls Milner, who now serves as host of two locally syndicated radio call-in shows—on fishing—from San Diego, his hometown. Kent McCord, his friend and Adam 12 costar (now Scott Keller on Sea-Quest DSV), dreams of resurrecting their old show. He'd better check with his partner. "A series would be so much work," Milner says. "I love talk and I love fishing. I'm having a ball."
