    I forgot to mention that he also appears in THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JUDGE ROY BEAN, which marked the acting debut for both Steve and Victoria!

    But then you wouldn't need my caps anymore :D

    Gerald being only in his late-20s (28 years old at the time of the original broadcast of that "Death Ride" episode of Petrocelli in 1975 on NBC); he would be in his mid-30s upon commencement of Simon & Simon on CBS in 1981, and in his 40s on the conclusion of that CBS detective/action series in 1989, and the premiere of Major Dad in that same year on that same network (late-40s on the conclusion of that CBS comedy in 1993).

    Interestingly Ken Swofford played the investigator character in The Lawyer, the film in which Barry Newman first played Petrocelli.
