After more than 100 films, many in starring roles and many in the theatre and television, Charlton Heston was bemused at receiving a huge salary for doing what he'd rather do more than anything else. Heston portrayed Jason Colby, the wealthy, tough business magnate in television series "The Colby's," that aired on ABC-TV in 1987.

After appearing in a school playlet at age five, Heston decided to become an actor "since it was a one-room school with thirteen kids in eight grades, landing the role was hardly an endorsement of my talent," he said. Nevertheless, he can't remember ever wanting to be anything but an actor.
