It has been discussed at times that some feel the Wes Parmalee story wasn’t believable because Steve Forrest did not resemble Jim Davis in any was. Although he was a great actor and did a great job with the part, his mannerisms were different as was his build and walk. It goes without saying that his looks were totally different. Personally, I enjoyed Steve Forrest in the part, but if you could have picked another actor of the time to play the part who might have pulled it off better, who would it have been? My choice is going to have to stretch the imagination a bit, because he passed away in October 1986; therefore, he couldn’t have finished the season. However, I always thought Forrest Tucker could have pulled it off. I think he and Jim Davis resembled a bit, and I think he could have done well with Jock’s personality.
