Jon Cypher Online
EST 2014 | a tribute site to actor jon cypher
Welcome to MAVERICK JON CYPHER ONLINE @ www.joncypher.org an online resource to American actor Jon Cypher. Well known for his portrayal of Chief Fletcher P. Daniels on the 1982 NBC cop drama HILL STREET BLUES, as Major General Martin Goldman on the CBS Vietnam War drama TOUR OF DUTY and as General Marcus Craig on MAJOR DAD and as Duncan, Man at Arms in the film HE MAN & THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, as Brian in H. G. Wells' FOOD OF THE GODS, and as Prince Christopher in the live televised version of CINDERELLA starring Julie Andrews from 1957. Jon has a strong resume encompassing film, television and the stage. Although Jon is now retired I hope this site stands as a tribute to his talent.

I found this on Youtube and thought you’d love to see it. There is a video with a few of Jon’s MAJOR DAD bloopers. Jon played the part of Brigadier General Marcus C. Craig on the show for its final three seasons. I’ve been rewatching this show and found Jon’s humour so funny. How he delivered the lines so perfectly despite Matt Mulhern (Lt. Eugene Halowachuck) and Beverly Archer’s (Gunnery Sgt Alva Bricker) comedic timing…. I’d say these three were the stand outs for me during the show’s final seasons. I did watch it in the show’s first season but didn’t think it found its feet until the second and the additions of Archer and Jon. I have to say I adored Shanna Reed (Polly Cooper McGillis), Marisa Ryan (Elizabeth Cooper McGillis), Nicole Dubuc (Robin Cooper McGillis) and simply and totally loved Chelsea Hertford (Casey Cooper McGillis). I had begun watching the show due to having seen Gerald McRaney (Major John McGillis) on the show Simon and Simon. While I did like season one, having Jon added just made my watching of this show that much more perfect.
