Fans always ask Robert Conrad the same question: Can he still fit into the skin-tight pants he wore 30 years ago on the Western spoof "The Wild, Wild West"? "The answer is yes," the 58-year-old Conrad says with a hearty laugh. "There were times in the last 28 years where I couldn't. But I have gotten myself to where I am happy." Conrad played sexy James T. West, an undercover agent for President Ulysses S. Grant, on the series, which aired on CBS from 1965-69.

In the mid-1960s, there seemed to be plenty of guys named James running around blowing things up, foiling dastardly plans and making the planet -- and galaxy -- a safer place for Western-style democracies. And they all achieved this with a distinctive style. British secret agent James Bond did it shaken, not stirred. Starship Capt. James T. Kirk did it with his middle initial.
