CareerEdit

Kincaid was born Norman Neale Williams II. His father, a second lieutenant in the Army Air Forces, died during World War II. His mother remarried and moved to Oakland,[citation needed] where Kincaid graduated from Oakland High School.[2]

While attending UCLA, Kincaid was spotted in a local stage production by a casting agent and signed to a contract with Universal Pictures.[1] That led to a brief, uncredited performance in Spartacus.[citation needed] Kincaid then landed a regular role in the final season of the television sitcom Bachelor Father (1962), as Warren Dawson, Bentley Gregg's junior partner and fiance of Gregg's niece, Kelly.[1]

Kincaid subsequently appeared with Corcoran in the 1965 comedy The Girls on the Beach and had roles in Beach Ball and Ski Party and made what was billed as a "guest appearance" in Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. He was strongly considered for the lead of The Graduate before director Mike Nichols chose Dustin Hoffman; Kincaid's agent turned down a cameo to play Katharine Ross' groom in the film [3]

His other film roles include the Disney musical The Happiest Millionaire, The Proud and the Damned and a cameo in the slasher film Silent Night, Deadly Night. He also made guest appearances on TV series such as The Beverly Hillbillies, Family Affair, and Get Smart before moving to San Francisco in the early 1970s and launching a successful career as a model.

Still later, as an artist, Kincaid used the name N.N. Williams II. He sold his landscapes and seascapes through galleries in Laguna Beach.

Kincaid, a resident of Beverly Hills, died at age 70 on January 6, 2011, at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Hospital from heart-related problems.[1]
