Robert Hogan’s Career!

During his career, Hogan appeared in over 100 primetime episodes as well as practically every daytime drama on television.

“Hogan’s Heroes,” “The Donna Reed Show,” “The Twilight Zone,” “I Dream of Jeannie,” “Laverne & Shirley,” “Gunsmoke,” “The Manhunter,” “Operation Petticoat,” “One Day at a Time,” “Peyton Place,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” and “The Wire” (as retired shipwright Louis Sobotka, Frank Sobotka’s older brother) are among his numerous television credits.

Hogan had a more than coincidence name connection to “Hogan’s Heroes,” a CBS sitcom in which he appeared twice as a guest actor (in 1965 and 1970).

Colonel Robert Hogan was named after a friend of show co-creator Bernie Fein, according to Brenda Scott Royce’s book “Hogan’s Heroes: Behind the Scenes at Stalag 13.”

Even the genuine Hogan was considered for the major role of a wise-cracking senior-ranking POW.

According to the book, “name alone was not enough to secure Hogan the post of his colonel namesake.” “At the time, Hogan was an unknown actor, and CBS wanted to cast a ‘name’ actor.”
