Max Baer, Jr. (born December 4, 1937) is a American actor. He had 19 guest starring TV roles, but most people only remember him as Jethro Bodine on The Beverly Hillbillies (1962-1971). He appeared in four movies, but, due to being heavily typecast as Jethro, had to write, direct, and/or produce most of them.
In late 2003, Baer, Jr. started to try to develop a building in Carson City, Nevada into a hotel and casino that capitalizes on his Hillbillies character. He originally wanted to develop a casino, mall, and movie theater in Reno, Nevada.
