Greg Brady was played by Barry Williams. As the oldest sibling of all the Brady kids, Greg was often the one leading family meetings between the brothers and sisters and acting as the spokesman for all of them. Greg was also one of the more popular boys at Westdale High School, and though he could easily be considered a big-man-on-campus, that never really resulted in him being a prototypical jock jerk, no matter how good he was at sports. Even his reputation as “the Casanova of Clinton Avenue” wasn’t something that turned him into a complete douchebag, though a very short-lived career as a groovy rock star known as “Johnny Bravo” made him a little too big for his britches at one point.
As for Barry Williams, “The Brady Bunch” came in his young career after the actor appeared in shows like “The FBI,” “Gomer Pyle USMC,” and “Adam-12.” Following “The Brady Bunch,” Williams would make guest appearances in classic shows like “Three’s Company,” “General Hospital,” “Murder, She Wrote” and “Full House.” In the more modern television era, Williams guest starred in the likes of “Scrubs,” “That ’70s Show,” and “According to Jim.
But over the years, Williams couldn’t help but reprise his role as Greg Brady several times, whether it was the unfortunate animated series “The Brady Kids” or the hokey variety show “The Brady Bunch Hour,” more modern TV movies like “The Brady Girls Get Married” or “A Very Brady Christmas,” or the disastrous, more dramatic ’90s sequel series “The Bradys,” which lasted only six episodes and saw the remaining episodes combined into TV movies. Like several “Brady Bunch” cast members, Williams also made a cameo in “The Brady Bunch Movie,” as a record producer who encounters the film’s version of Greg Brady.
More recently, Williams has entered the reality television circuit with appearances on “The Masked Singer” and “Dancing with the Stars.”
