Sgt. Rick Hunter on the action series Hunter, in which he co-starred opposite Stepfanie Kramer from 1984 to 1991. He also starred as Mike Land on the series Land's End from 1995 to 1996.
Throughout his Hollywood career, Dryer hung out frequently at the Playboy Mansion. ("He can throw a party, pal," Dryer has said of his friend Hugh Hefner.) From 1983 to 1988 he was married to former Playboy centerfold Tracy Vaccaro,
with whom he had one daughter, Caitlin.
In the early 1990s, Dryer started his own production company, Fred Dryer Productions, in part to counterbalance what he perceived as the pro-liberal bias of the media industry. "I look at what's being made these days, and it's all convoluted politics," he told an interviewer. "The liberal bathwater coming out of this town has these people's tainted opinions about what is right and wrong & Political Correctness is destroying our culture." In 2006, he formed the film production company Dryer/Padgett Films with his son-in-law, actor Jason Padgett.
Dryer lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to act, produce films, work as a product spokesperson and enjoy the company of two small granddaughters.
