Actor. Born Gerard Kenneth Tierney in Brooklyn, New York. Brother of actors Lawrence Tierney and Ed Tracy. He served in the Navy during World War II, where he was a Navy boxing champion. He was a lumberjack early in life before taking up acting. Brady took drama classes, appearing in his first film, "Canon City," in 1948. He usually played the tough guy roles as in the films, "He Walked by Night" and "Johnny Guitar." He appeared regularly on the 1970s TV cop show, "Police Story." He was offered the role of Archie Bunker in "All in the Family" (1971) but turned it down. He did, however, make a later guest appearance. He acted in over 60 movies from 1948 through 1984. While in his 50s, Scott Brady was diagnosed with emphysema. He continued to take acting jobs in such projects as "The Winds of War" TV miniseries and on the TV series' "Simon and Simon" and "Matt Houston." His last film role was in the 1984 movie Gremlins. Not long after the film's release, Brady passed away from respiratory failure. (bio by: Jane Stacy Eubanks)
