Dennis Fimple

Excellent and engaging character actor Dennis Fimple was born on November 11, 1940 in Ventura, California and raised in the nearby town of Taft. His father Elmer was an electrician and his mother Dolly was a beautician. Dennis first became interested in acting after he portrayed Tom Sawyer in a junior high school play. He was a graduate of Taft Union High School. Fimple attended San Jose College on a scholarship and majored in both speech and drama. He also earned a teaching credential at San Jose College. Dennis worked in a Cheetos factory by day and acted in dinner theater at night in his early struggling days as an actor. Fimple eventually moved to Hollywood where he initially worked as a teacher by day and a delivery man at night prior to getting his first break with a two episode guest appearance on the TV show "Petticoat Junction."

Best known as the lovably dim-witted Kyle Murty on the comedy Western television program "Alias Smith and Jones," Dennis popped up in many TV series throughout the years which include "Here Come the Brides," "Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.," "M.A.S.H.," "The Rockford Files," "Starsky and Hutch," "Charlie's Angels," "Battlestar Galactica," "The Dukes of Hazzard," "Matt Houston," "Highway to Heaven," "Knight Rider," "The A-Team," "The Incredible Hulk," "Simon & Simon," "Sledge Hammer!," "Quantum Leap," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," and "ER." Fimple was frequently cast as scruffy rural types in both films and TV shows alike. Among his most memorable movie roles are the amiable Curly in the delightful Claudia Jennings drive-in classic "Truck Stop Women," easygoing moonshine runner Dewey Crenshaw in "Bootleggers," likable eager beaver college anthropology student Pahoo in the terrific Sasquatch cinema outing "Creature from Black Lake," the goofy Sunfish in the much-maligned '76 "King Kong" remake, and cloddish fur trapper Posey in the superior horror-Western "The Shadow of Chikara." His last film part was as the madcap Grandpa Hugo Firefly in Rob Zombie's enjoyably trashy 70's horror exploitation pastiche "House of 1000 Corpses."

Dennis was not only an avid reader, but also a lover of antiques and collectibles. He's the father of son Chris. Dennis Fimple died at age 61 of complications from a car accident at his home in Frazier Park, California on August 23, 2002.
