Question: Which actor was Howard Hughes’ former body guard?

Answer: Hollywood lost one of its longtime icons on August 1, 2020, with the passing of Wilford Brimley. Some knew the 85-year-old actor from films such as The China syndrom (1979), The Natural (1984), and Cocoon (1985). Others knew him as the spokesperson for Quaker Oats. Before becoming a stuntman and actor, Brimley worked as a bodyguard for aviator-turned-recluse Howard Hughes. “He was a good guy,” Brimley once said of his former employer. The job came in part through Brimley’s membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Hughes reportedly preferred to employ Mormons, as he liked that they didn’t smoke or drink.
