Greg Evigan creeped us out as Willie Gust, the penny-ante con who charmed and kidnapped our poor little Lucy in the first season ("miniseries") of "Dallas." That was just before he made his name as Billie Joe McKay on NBC's "B.J. and the Bear." This hunky guy was once the "Bionic Boy" on ABC's "Six Million Dollar Man" / "Bionic Woman" tour de force -- can you believe it? (And one of these days we're going to rewatch all those old episodes and be just as happy as a pig in slop!!!! Plus, those "Bionic Boy" storylines also starred Kerry Sherman of "Santa Barbara" and Joan Van Ark of "Dallas" -- ooooh, we just love this whole classic TV thang!). He went on to play a dad in NBC's "My Two Dads," as well as starring in William Shatner's "TekWar" stuff of the 1990s and even a juicy role on Fox's "Melrose Place."
Well ... nowadays, Evigan has been guesting on the stockcar racing show "Racin' for a Livin," and he also stars in "My Silent Partner," airing this Saturday, October 21, on Lifetime, at 3 p.m.
The TV movie, directed by Ron Oliver, is about "a San Francisco policewoman (Joanna Going of the 1990 "Dark Shadows" remake) who accepts a favor from a local crime boss to counter a nasty child custody battle with her ex-husband, and finds herself dangerously entangled with the mob."
No BRBTV birthdays this week, by the way.
