James Daughton (born June 27, 1950) is a film and television actor who is best known for his role as Gregg Marmalard in National Lampoon's Animal House (1978). Daughton's portrayal of Gregg Marmalard has become iconic in American popular culture as a quintessential brown nosing, snobbish, phony, WASP. Raised in San Diego, Daughton had roles early in his career on Marcus Welby, MD, Room 222, Happy Days (as the man who challenges Fonzie to water ski over the shark), and the 1972 western The Revengers (as William Holden's son). He also appeared in the 1982 film The Beach Girls, in which he was noted primarily for stripping naked and running into the sea. His other film appearances include Malibu Beach (1978), Swim Team (1979), Blind Date (1984), Spies Like Us (1985), Girlfriend from Hell (1989) and Sorority Boys (2002).
