Help! Many years ago there ...

Question: Help! Many years ago there was a TV program called Maverick, which was about two brothers, Bret and Bart. One was played by James Garner and the other by...? It's driving us nuts. Please try to help. I can see his face, but not his name. Thanks.Answer: Don't get too down about it, Irwin.

Premise: Two gambler brothers were the roguish antiheroes in this Emmy-winning tongue-in-cheek classic, which made James Garner a star. The genial `Maverick' broke the mold of traditional shoot-'em-ups, with siblings who would much rather draw cards than their guns. The series worked as a traditional Western, but the best episodes were those that spoofed contemporary shows like `Gunsmoke,' `Bonanza' and even `Dragnet.' Garner reprised the character 20 years later in the short-lived `Bret Maverick.'
