Biography

New York City, New York, USA
As New York-born Worster Von Eps, he was a meter reader who turned professional tennis player but, in 1937, at the age of 25, he parlayed his fair-haired good looks and obvious athleticism into an acting career and changed his name to an easier-sounding marquee moniker, Willard Parker. After a number of uncredited film roles and a couple of appearances on the Broadway stage with "Johnny Belinda" (1940) and "Lady in the Dark" (1943), he was signed by Columbia in the 1940s and moved into "B" movie leads and co-leads.
