These are all talented actors for sure. I would choose Jon, one reason is his small stature like Johnny. as an adult Jon is even shorted than Johnny. I think he looked younger than his age and being so small it would make the tall Lucas even more massive. its sad that Don Grady and Billy Hughes have already passed away.

If I had a gun pointed at my head and was forced to cast the role of Mark McCain - I guess I would pick Jon Provost.

Jon was a cute kid and he had blond hair (and blue eyes?) like Chuck.

Deneen I agree with you.....I would have to have a gun pointed at my head. I do wonder if any of these did try out for Mark. I do know Jon was already cast in Lassie.

It’s hard because Johnny is so engrained in my brain as Mark. I think Billy Hughes Jr. had a really innocent look to him when he was younger so I at first would’ve picked him...

...but him having played Jeffery Waller and Grid kinda ruined that picture for me. I think I’d probably go with Bobby in the end because he looks the most like Johnny. (...And I wonder why that would be... 😂)

I might have picked Bobby Crawford as well. I guess because of his several appearances on Rifleman he was the most like Johnny

I don't think anyone could ever see Mark as anyone but Johnny

What about Kurt Russell? Not on the list but I think he would have made a great Mark McCain.
