Is this Josh or Jason in Wanted Dead or Alive?

Can you tell the difference between the bounty hunter and his fun-loving sidekick?


For the king of cool Steve McQueen, Wanted Dead or Alive was the perfect bridge from guest roles and B-movies to superstardom in blockbuster action films. His charisma leapt off the screen as bounty hunter Josh Randall.

Though Wanted was generally a one-man show in terms of regular characters, the second half of season two featured a friendly companion named Jason Nichols who partnered with Josh on various adventures. Jason was played by Wright King, a versatile character actor who had already guest starred in two Wanted episodes as other characters and later appeared in classic Twilight Zone stories “Shadow Play” and “Of Late I Think of Cliffordville.” He was also in many Gunsmoke episodes including a memorable outing with his own kids as costars.

We’ve collected a few images of both Wanted Dead or Alive stars. With their faces covered, can you still tell the difference between them?

Really thought I would ace this quiz, since I watch this show every single night, but those big squares sometimes threw me off(along with the fact that I stupidly thought that the pic on #6 was actually a pic from Wagon Train and I thought, "I don't remember Steve McQueen being on Wagon Train.")

On another note, #4, the one with "Baba" the sheep, is a very funny episode. Wanted Dead or Alive had some good and funny, light-hearted episodes interspersed with all the serious ones, and "Baba" was one of them.

8/10 Went by clothing but got tripped up on 6 and 10. I think Josh wore the same thing in every episode. Not a big wardrobe budget. Not familiar with the sidekick.

9/10. Wardrobe was a good clue. Josh sometimes wore a jacket, but never a vest. They did this to save money, just like on Bonanza. By using the same wardrobe, the could use the same footage over and over. For example, some scenes where the main character was in a barroom brawl or riding across the prairie could be used in several episodes.. Another clue was the shoulders. Josh had broader shoulders and held them up straighter. A woman notices these things. The one I missed was #3.

I got 7/10. And (I think I've figured out a system here!) I didn't even bother to look at the pictures, because I've never seen a single episode of the show.
