Q Could you please tell me what happened to the actor Michael Beck, who was in the movie Xanadu and the TV show Houston Nights?
—Lynn C., Alabama
Beck was born in Memphis, Tenn., raised on a cotton and soybean farm in Arkansas, and quarterbacked the football team at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss. His role in the Hollywood cult classic The Warriors led to work in Xanadu, Megaforce (for which he won a "Razzie" Award for Worst Supporting Actor) and more than 25 other movies and TV shows. Now writing his first novel, Beck lives in California with his wife of 25 years, Cari.
