Randolph Mantooth (born September 19, 1945 in Sacramento, California to Sadie and Donald Mantooth) is an American prolific character actor of stage, best known for his work in the 1970s medical drama Emergency!, as paramedic John Gage, alongside Robert Fuller, Bobby Troup, Julie London and Kevin Tighe. He is also known for his work on the E! Network's program Talk Soup alongside host John Henson, and for appearing in various soap operas starting in the 1980s.


Mantooth, who is half Seminole, attended San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara, California. He graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts after high school. His role on Emergency! as John Gage first shot him to stardom in 1972, and he played the role from 1972 to 1979. Later, he found it difficult to sustain any long-term acting roles until he appeared as Clay Alden (later Alex Masters) on the soap opera Loving, which he played from 1987 to 1990 and from 1993 to 1995. Mantooth reprised his role as Alex Masters on The City from 1995 to 1997.

In 2003, Mantooth joined the cast of As the World Turns as a temporary replacement for Benjamin Hendrickson in the role of Hal Munson. When Hendrickson left the show in 2004, Mantooth was again cast as Munson, also in a recurring position; Hendrickson returned to the program in 2005. In 2007, Mantooth landed the recurring role of Kirk Harmon on One Life to Live, but the character was killed off after two months.

Mantooth serves as honorary chairman and spokesperson for the non-profit County of Los Angeles Fire Museum Association, and recently received an award for his efforts from the International Association of Fire Chiefs' EMS section. He has been married to Kristen Connors since 2002. He and his Emergency co-star Kevin Tighe have remained close friends since the series. [1]

Mantooth has a brother Donald (born 20 June 1952) and two sisters Nancy (born ?) and Tonya (born 12 Jun 1959). In August 2002, Mantooth married Kristen Marie Connors at the Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens.
