ED AMES NOW 

Ed Ames is a singer and actor who was part of the popular 1950s singing group
called The Ames Brothers. When the group disbanded in 1960, Ed pursued a
career in acting. His first starring role was in an off Broadway production of Arthur
Miller’s The Crucible. His greatest success on stage came with his portrayal of
Chief Bromden in the Broadway production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, opposite Kirk Douglas.Talent scouts saw Ed’s stage performance and invited him
to play the Native American Mingo on the NBC-TV series Daniel Boone starring
Fess Parker. The show aired from 1964 to 1970. 

          

 

While playing Mingo on television, Ames developed some skill in throwing
a tomahawk. This led to one of the most memorable moments of his career,
when he appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson on April
29, 1965.
