Character actor. Local, too -- born in Fairview, went to Drury University. He played the Rev. Robert Alden in the TV show "Little House on the Prairie." CBS News reports:
Greer played "everyman" roles, from bus drivers to preachers and shopkeepers, in nearly 100 movies and hundreds of TV show episodes. He played a prison guard in the 1999 movie "The Green Mile."

He played storekeeper Mr. Jonus on "Gunsmoke" and also was the minister who married Mike and Carol Brady in 1969 on TV's "The Brady Bunch."

Most of his work was in supporting roles, but Greer told the Albany, N.Y., Times Union in 2000: "Every character actor, in their own little sphere, is the lead."
He was an extra in "Jesse James," a 1938 movie filmed in Pineville.

Brother Richard, Randy Turner and The Man From Harvard share the point.
