He is most remembered for his starring role as the charismatic, fast-talking Jason Bolt in the 1968–1970 ABC series Here Come the Brides, with costars Joan Blondell, David Soul, Bobby Sherman, Bridget Hanley and Mark Lenard. He also starred as Carter Primus in the 1971–1972 syndicated sea adventure series Primus. Brown portrayed the split-personality character Lazarus on the Star Trek episode "The Alternative Factor" (1967), being cast at the last minute when John Drew Barrymore failed to appear for shooting. His only feature film credit is the horror film Tower of London (1962).
