Georg Stanford Brown (born June 24, 1943 in Havana, Cuba) is a Cuban-American actor[1] and director, perhaps best known as one of the stars of the ABC police television series The Rookies from 1972–76.[1] On the show, Brown played the character of Officer Terry Webster.

During the 1960s, Brown had a variety of roles in television and film, including a portrayal of Henri Philipot in 1967's The Comedians, and playing Dr. Willard in 1968's Bullitt.

Brown later played Tom Harvey (son of Chicken George, great-grandson of Kunta Kinte, and great-grandfather of Alex Haley) in the 1977 television miniseries Roots, and 1979's Roots: The Next Generations.

In 1980, he starred in the highly successful Stir Crazy opposite Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. Later in 1984 he starred in the TV movie The Jesse Owens Story in the role of Lew Gilbert. He then went on to a supporting role in yet another miniseries North & South in 1985 as a character named Grady.

Brown co-starred in the Showtime television show Linc's from 1998 thru 2000.
