John Davidson, the dimpled, wholesome singing actor seen everywhere on television in the 1970s and ‘80s, has a wicked secret: He’s not the squeaky-clean boy next door — and never was.
“I have a national fan club,” Davidson says. “I’m amazed at how this fan club is so conservative and so Republican. I don’t think they understand who I am. But that’s just fine. That’s not important. I’m very much a progressive and have been for years. People don’t always see that right away.”
