His life after Greg Brady…

In 1974, The Brady Bunch was cancelled three weeks before shooting for season six was about to begin.

He ended up touring with productions such as Romance/ Romance, The Sound of Music, West Side Story and Grease.

He did eventually return to TV and ended up being typecast in roles very similar to Greg.

However, he did get to play a different type of role when he was cast as Hannibal on General Hospital.
