An amiable, gray-haired actor with a nasal twang, Mason Adams is perhaps best known for his Emmy-nominated role as managing editor Charlie Hume on the long-running TV series "Lou Grant" (CBS, 1977-82). He began his career on radio in the 1940s, starring as the title character on the popular "Pepper Young's Family" from 1945-59. Adams has made the occasional film appearance, including "F/X" (1986) and more recently as a priest in Paul Schrader's "Touch" (1997). Also a prolific voice-over artist, he has helped sell a wide range of products, most notably Smucker's jams and jellies.
