An Interview with Michael McGreevey

Michael McGreevey: From Actor to Writer By Henry C. Park

As a child and as a teen, Michael McGreevey co-starred in Burt Reynolds’ first Western series, and co-starred in big-screen Westerns with Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas, and Richard Widmark. Of course, if you know that his father was screenwriter John McGreevey, who won an Emmy for The Waltons, who created the Western series Black Saddle, you’d probably guess that Michael had a gentle “push” into showbiz. But you’d be mistaken. In fact, while Michael appeared on an episode of Black Saddle his father wrote, “What’s so funny is, he didn’t know that they were casting me.”
