One of the small screen's most reliable heavies during the 1970s, veteran television actor Gerald McRaney successfully made the daunting shift from bad guy to good guy roles beginning in the early part of the following decade. Best known as the street-smart and elder brother Richard "Rick" Simon on the popular 1980s detective drama, "Simon & Simon" (CBS, 1981-88), the lovably strict "Major Dad" (CBS, 1989-1993), and for his long, successful marriage to actress Delta Burke, this mustachioed TV actor boasted an enviable TV résumé, including "Promised Land" (CBS, 1996-99), "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06) and the hit nuclear drama, "Jericho" (CBS, 2006-08). McRaney also enjoyed a big screen success as Liam Neeson's boss, General Morrison, in the action smash "The A-Team" (2010). Thirty-plus years into his career, McRaney continued to work on the stage and on screen, a low-key, likable actor respected for his skill and professionalism.
