Wings Hauser

Wings Hauser was born Gerald Dwight Hauser in Hollywood, California on 12th December 1947. The son of director and producer Dwight Hauser.

Hauser made his acting debut at age five with a radio commercial.

After a high-school career based in sports (his name “Wings” is taken from the wing-back position he played in football), he chose to lean toward the arts – acting and music after a severe knee injury ended any thoughts of a pro career.

In 1966 Hauser appeared in the tv show 12 O’Clock High and had an uncredited role on the big screen in 1967’s First to Fight.

“I’m from California, not New York. California actors are more geared to entertain. There’s nothing worse than boring the audience. The New York actors I’ve worked with are very realistic, but reality can be boring. I like to put a little turbo power into my performance.”

Hauser initially launched a music career under the name Wings Livinryte and in 1975 released an album entitled Your Love Keeps Me Off the Streets.

The following year he appeared in Movin’ On and Baretta then by 1977 he was appearing in the soap opera The Young and the Restless, as Greg Foster. He also made appearances in Emergency!, Aspen, and Who’ll Stop the Rain.

In 1981 Hauser appeared in Magnum P.I., this was followed up with roles in Vice Squad, Homework, The Fall Guy, Ghost Dancing, Deadly Force, Mutant, Hunter, Hardcastle and McCormick, Airwolf, The Long Hot Summer, Airwolf, The Last Precinct, The Highway Man, Perry Mason: The Case of the Scandalous Scoundrel, Deadman Walking, Freddy’s Nightmares, Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time, China Beach, Lightning Force , Space Rangers, Rosanne, Walker: Texas Ranger, Watchers III, Murder She Wrote, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, JAG, Beverly Hills 90210, Kingpin, House, Monk, Cold Case, and Bones.

In 2010 Hauser appeared in the cult movie Rubber, this was followed up with roles in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Hawaii Five-0, and Castle.

“I just like putting new skin on and going in and doing some new character. My problem is that I’ve never been able to find the top to go over. There’s a lot of room up there.”
