Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A veteran television actor, Hastings got his start in radio after World War II as the voice of the title character in "Archie Andrews," a spin-off of the "Archie Comics" series. But he soon moved to the screen. Hastings began in television, working on the Cold War sci-fi series "Atom Squad" before scoring his first recurring role as a lieutenant on the sitcom "The Phil Silvers Show" in 1956. One of Hastings's best-known roles was as Lieutenant Elroy Carpenter on another military comedy, "McHale's Navy," from 1962 to 1966. Other notable shows on which Hastings has appeared include the anthology series "The Twilight Zone," the soap opera "General Hospital," and the caustic comedy "All in the Family." But his work as a voice actor in animated series and commercials is possibly even more prominent: Hastings has voiced characters on numerous superhero series, and may be best known for his work as Commissioner Jim Gordon in the popular "Batman: The Animated Series."
