The Untold Truth Of Mark Harmon

Everybody loves themselves some Mark Harmon. And yet despite all that love, you don't hear too much about the NCIS star in the tabloids. Here are some things you may not know about the man behind TV's Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
In the early 1970s, the abilities Harmon displayed playing football at Pierce College in Oklahoma led to some high-profile offers from college squads. But according to Los Angeles Daily News, Harmon turned down a spot on the title-contending University of Oklahoma football team, instead opting to play for a school that was almost literally in his backyard, UCLA. And he turned out to be a real steal for the Bruins. In 1972, Harmon led UCLA to a 17-14 victory over Nebraska, breaking the Cornhuskers' unbelievable 32 game winning streak, as PAC-12 reported.
Harmon's squad amassed a record of 17 to 5 over two seasons, and his numbers were good enough to get some interest from the pros, according to Biography, but he turned down offers to focus on school instead.
He completed his communications degree, which, as an actor, he's actually used.

  • Mark Harmon was a kind of sort of role model for me is a child but I can't say exactly why. The movie Summer School might of had something to do with it.

  • Why does no one ever mention Harmon's impressive 1986 turn as the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy? It's the role that showed me he had real acting chops. I believe it was titled The Deliberate Stranger. It was based on Ann Rules book The Stranger Beside Me. Believe it or not, Rule & Bundy were volunteers together on a suicide prevention hotline in the state of Washington. Weird or what?

  • What makes him so sexy, besides his handsomeness, is his love for his wife and family. The same for David McCallum. I had such a crush him when he was on man from U.N.C.L.E. I think I was 12-13. I still have a little crush on him. ❤🤪

      Diane NewmanDiane NewmanAylar önce
    • @Mali Hong His sister Kristen was an alcoholic. She was married to Ricky Nelson and they had 4 children. Mark Harmon and his wife Pam Dawber tried to get custody of their youngest son Sam after Ricky was killed in a plane crash. I don't believe they succeeded but in the words of her other 2 sons, Matthew and Gunner, she was born without the "mother" gene. So obviously Mark Harmon was rightfully concerned about Sam staying in that environment. Kristen passed away a couple of years ago.

Phantom prey was one of my favorites and I remembered the part where he was dancing with the main villain who happened to be a beautiful chic, and boy he was so SO out of tune and looked very uncomfortable dancing [if you call clapping your hands dancing] lol. Yea plz find another actor who would actually resemble Lucas with his bravado since he played high school Hockey, and his fashion sense with his stylish clothes and fancy Lexus he likes to drive around with while fighting crime.
