Career

From 1970 to 1974 (and again in 1988 and 1995), Frank played Dr. Jeff Martin on the ABC soap opera All My Children. In 2006, it was announced that the character would be taken over by John James, former of Dynasty.

He also appeared twice on two episodes of M*A*S*H and once on the CBS family drama, Three for the Road. In 1977 Frank costarred with Deborah Winters and Claude Akins in the television horror film, Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo, directed by Stuart Hagmann.

In 1979, he appeared as Lester Hackett in four episodes in the CBS miniseries The Chisholms; when the production resumed in 1980, he was replaced in the role by Reid Smith. In 1982, Frank portrayed independently wealthy Stanley Beck on the short lived series Filthy Rich. Frank played astronaut Scott Carpenter in the movie version of Tom Wolfe's novel The Right Stuff (1983). He costarred with Dennis Weaver in CBS's short-lived (1983–1984) Emerald Point N.A.S.. Frank played Jack Warren, who was married to Susan Dey's character, Celia Mallory, who in the series divorces him to marry another lieutenant, Simon Adams, played by Richard Dean Anderson, later ABCs MacGyver.

Frank was reunited with former co-star Dixie Carter (she played his snide and snobby sister in-law, Carlotta) on her CBS series, Designing Women. In a 1992 episode, Frank played Mark, a date of her character, Julia.

In 2004, Frank narrated C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America, a mockumentary based in an alternate timeline in which the Confederacy won the American Civil War.

Personal life

It was on the set of All My Children that Frank met his wife Susan Blanchard, who played his character's wife, Mary Kennicott Martin. They married in 1977 and have one child.
