In Massacre at Central High (1976), this youngest son of actor John Carradine played a high school student. At the age of 30, in 1984's Revenge of the Nerds he was just entering college. While his career has often been overshadowed by his more famous brother Keith and half-brother David, the youngest Carradine displays an ingenuousness that makes even his lesser films (and there are plenty of them) worth watching. He made his film debut in the John Wayne Western The Cowboys (1972), later appearing in the short-lived 1974 TV show based on the film.
OTHER FILMS INCLUDE: 1973: Mean Streets 1976: The Pom-Pom Girls 1978: Coming Home 1980: The Big Red One (in a well-delineated dramatic role-perhaps his best); 1982: Tag: The Assassination Game 1987: Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise 1989: Rude Awakening 1992: Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation (telefilm).
