Gary Lockwood (born John Gary Yusolfsky on February 21, 1937 in Van Nuys, California) is an American actor who is probably best known for his role as astronaut Dr. Frank Poole in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). A very familiar face to movie and television audiences for nearly fifty years, Lockwood was a movie stuntman prior to his film acting debut in an uncredited bit role in 1959's Warlock. Lockwood's two TV series came early in his career and each lasted only one season. ABC's Hawaii-set Follow the Sun in 1961-1962. In his next series NBC's The Lieutenant (1963-1964), he had the title role of second lieutenant William Rice. The drama series about peacetime U.S. Marines. Despite moderately good reviews, The Lieutenant's Saturday night time slot opposite CBS's blockbuster Jackie Gleason's American Scene Magazine caused its cancellation after 29 episodes. Lockwood's other notable television work includes playing Lt. Commander Gary Mitchell in "Where No Man Has Gone Before", (filmed as the second pilot, but broadcast as the third episode) of Star Trek. He also co-starred with Stefanie Powers, his wife at the time, in a memorable episode of Love, American Style as a newlywed who gets his mouth stuck around a doorknob. Between 1959 and 2006, Gary Lockwood had roles in some 40 theatrical and made-for-TV features and made almost 80 TV guest appearances.
