Happy Birthday to Kene Holliday!

Well-known character actor Kene Holliday was born on June 25, 1949, in Long Island, New York.

Holliday is best known for his role as private investigator Tyler Hudson on Andy Griffith’s hit ’80s show “Matlock,” but also had genre-based roles on screen in “G.I. Joe: The Movie,” “G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero” and TV’s “The Incredible Hulk,” as well as voicing the role of Roadblock in the G.I. Joe cartoon.

Holliday also appeared in well-known and well-loved shows “The Jeffersons,” “Kojak,” “What’s Happening,” “Benson,” “Hart to Hart,” “Roots: The Next Generations,” “Doogie Howser, M.D.,” “Soap,” and Holliday’s first sit-com “Carter Country” (a show about a small-town, Southern police station that, personally, I found hilarious at eight years old).

Holliday’s most recent career success was being nominated for a 2008 Gotham Award for Breakthrough Performance and a 2008 Independent Spirit Award for Supporting Male for his role as a member of a record producing team in award-winning director Craig Zobel’s comedy, “Great World of Sound.” And in 2009, he started theater company Moto Theatre Works in Long Island.
