Discussion in 'Dallas - The Original Series' started by Ray&Donna, Jan 14, 2017.
Michael Bell returns as a new character, the district attorney
Ned Beatty (DELIVERANCE, HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET)
Diana Ewing (no relation )
Gerald McRaney (MAJOR DAD, SIMON & SIMON)
More to come...
Ned Beatty is such a great character actor
Still live in hope that Petrochelli ( let me take you back to that night in question....) will be relaesed one day in UK
a cavalcade of first-rate character actors!
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

Its that awful scene in Deliverance that I first noticed him and he was in Our Town with BBG in 1979 x
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).
Ken Swofford tells Petrocelli his client is no good...
John Saxon (DYNASTY, FALCON CREST)
Glenn Corbett makes a return appearance...
Robbie Rist (Cousin Oliver) [THE BRADY BUNCH, MARY TYLER MOORE]
H.M. Wynant (Ed Chapman)
Interestingly Ken Swofford played the investigator character in The Lawyer, the film in which Barry Newman first played Petrocelli.
