The muscular actor and West Point graduate has appeared on more than 200 magazine covers, Bravo’s reality television show Work Out and NBC’s daytime soap opera Days Of Our Lives, according to a website in Greg’s name. Coulter says Plitt had jumped out of planes more than 1,000 times in his life and had a taste for the extreme, but also treated everyone and everything with respect and care as befitted his military past.
