Q: Where is Brandon Cruz, who starred as Eddie on The Courtship of Eddie's Father?

—Marty Wilson, Fresno, Calif.

Cruz, 49, who played the son of widower Bill Bixby in the 1969-1972 TV series, lives in Oxnard, Calif., with his wife, son and daughter and works as a case manager with Walking Miracles Foundation, a drug and alcohol recovery community. He named his son, Lincoln Bixby Cruz, 16, in honor of his TV dad. "Bill Bixby was like my second father," says Cruz, who for 30 years has sung in punk rock bands, including the Dead Kennedys, and ridden waves around the world on his surfboard. "Surfing and punk rock probably saved my life," he says. The first season of The Courtship of Eddie's Father was recently made available on DVD.
