Although most of us know him as playing Dr. Bill Corter in the 1962 cult film The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962), Jason Evers (born Herb Evers in New York, New York 1922) has done much more than meets the eye. Originally quitting school to join the Army during WWII, Evers later decided to act after seeing many Hollywood stars like John Wayne and Humphrey Bogart. His first big break was in 1960 in a TV series called "Wrangler" (1960) followed by several roles in Pretty Boy Floyd (1960), House of Women (1962) and another TV series called "Channing" (1963).When 1970 came along Evers's career began to decline. He did a sequel to _Planet of the Apes (1968) with Roddy McDowell in Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971), went back to TV in a film called Fer-de-Lance (1974) (TV), was a vengeful hunter out to kill a murderous grizzly bear in Claws (1977) and then a biologist out to stop man-eating fish with Wayne Crawford in Barracuda (1978).After 67 TV guest-appearances throughout the 80s, Evers suddenly returned to the big screen in 1990 for Basket Case 2 (1990).
