Edward Byrnes was christened Edward Byrne Breitenberger in New York in 1933, born of German and Irish extraction.

His alcoholic father died when he was 13. He changed his surname to Byrnes, which was his maternal grandfather's surname, and he appeared in the movie Marjorie Morningstar as Edward Byrnes.

He appeared most famously as 'Kookie Kookson III' on the TV series 77 Sunset Strip; and was hired to host Wheel of Fortune, but was fired by Merv Griffin after only the pilot episode in 1974; he has appeared in many TV shows and unmemorable movies.

Best known as "Edd Byrnes" so as to distinguish himself from actor/director Edward Burns.
