Jan-Michael Vincent, a 1980s heartthrob who starred in "Airwolf", died at age 74.

Although several online biographies list Vincent's birth year as 1944, the death certificate released by authorities in North Carolina has it listed as 1945.

His body was cremated and no autopsy was performed.

The actor played the lead in the CBS series "Airwolf", and also had movie roles opposite Robert Mitchum, Charles Bronson and Gene Hackman in the 70s. His last credited role was in 2002's White Boy.




Vincent's acting career began in 1967, when he was spotted by a talent scout just after finishing a stint in the California Army National Guard. At one point, Vincent was the highest paid actor on network television, pulling in $200,000 per episode. Vincent started seeking help for drug and alcohol problems while he was still on the show.

In addition to Airwolf, Vincent appeared in a number of other TV series, such as Police Story, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and Nash Bridges. He was also involved in three auto accidents which he barely survived and received severe injuries from, including permanent damage to his vocal cords and three broken vertebrae in his neck.

In 2008, Vincent was in another vehicle crash and contracted an infection that led to his lower right leg being amputated.

Vincent lived with his third wife Patricia Ann who he married in 1999.
