Gable made a name for himself as the host of the reality shower Cheaters. The show used hidden-cameras on people suspected of adultery. At the end of the episode, Gable would appear and confront the cheaters. The series first began in 200 and Gable hosted the show from 2012 to 2015 before being replaced.

In the later years of his life, Gable set out in an attempt to follow after his grandfather. He was working on the crime drama Sunset at Dawn when he died and had just wrapped up the dramedy Heckle.


The young actor’s father is John Clark Gable, who was born after Clark Gable’s death. He’s the son of Kay Williams and the acting legend best known as Rhett Butler in the 1939 classic film, Gone With The Wind.
