Trade Mark (1)

Deep Voice

Trivia (9)

Made his stage debut as the male romantic lead in "The Impossible Years" with Ozzie Nelson and Harriet Nelson Nelson.
An early interest in professional baseball led to an avid interest in golf in later years. He's been a member of the Hollywood Hackers, an organization of show business amateurs who travel and play golf while entertaining at the same time. Mike is a singer and has recorded two albums on the sly.
In 1966 he joined the cast of Petticoat Junction (1963) as the dashing, deep-voiced, hunky pilot Steve Elliott, who crash-lands in Hooterville and is nursed back to health by the lovely countrified trio Billie Jo (Meredith MacRae), Betty Jo (Linda Henning)and Bobbie Jo Bradley (Lori Saunders). Much was made out of which daughter would eventually walk down the aisle with him. Linda's Betty Jo, the tomboy who showed the least interest, was the eventual winner. A real-life romance was set off in the process, and a year after the two characters married on the show, Mike and Linda married in real life. They divorced five years later.
Enjoyed a nice stretch in the '80s as one of Susan Lucci's various paramours on the soap All My Children (1970), not to mention briefer stints on other soaps, including Another World (1964) and As the World Turns (1956).
Stepson of Yvonne Lime.
Ex-son-in-law of Paul Henning and Ruth Henning.
Older brother of Gregg Fedderson.
"Minor" was his mother's maiden name.
