Morning Man Classic: Bruce Boxleitner!
Happy birthday to Bruce Boxleitner who turns 70 today.
The first time I saw Bruce I was sitting in the living room of Zura Hall at San Diego State University all excited to see Kate Jackson in her first TV series since leaving Charlie’s Angels.
I came to watch Kate but could not take my eyes off of the handsome Bruce who had previously starred in the series How the West Was Won and Bring ‘Em Back Alive.
The show ran for four seasons and Bruce went on to have another hit series with Babylon 5 as Captain John J. Sheridan as well as several Babylon 5 TV movies.
Bruce is also known for his dual role as the characters Alan Bradley and Tron in the 1982 film Tron, a role which he reprised in the 2010 sequel, Tron: Legacy and the animated series Tron: Uprising which takes place between the two films.
In recent years, Bruce had a recurring role in the TV series Cedar Cove and recurred as President Phillip Baker in Supergirl. He has also appeared in a steady string of movies on Hallmark Channel including Gourmet Detective: Eat, Drink, and Be Buried, The Christmas Contract, Holiday Date, Matchmaker Mysteries: A Killer Engagement, and Matchmaker Mysteries: A Fatal Romance, among others.
