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.

While doing a search on Youtube for Jon, I happened to find this. It’s a rare television appearance on the Tony Awards in 1984. Here Jon plays the part of Julian Marsh in the 1984 production of 42ND STREET. This is so cool finding this. If you’re looking Jon, enjoy.

This makes the completion of Jon’s work in MAJOR DAD. This was the last season for the show. The beginning saw Jon confined to a wheel chair for the first seven episodes due to an accident he had on stage in Pittsburgh where rehearsals were underway for a performance of OLIVER where Jon played the part of Fagin. Though it didn’t seem to get in the way. Jon worked that thing like a pro. He used crutches for one more episode before being back to his old fit self. This season was highlighted by Craig’s shenanigans in the episode Night School where he and Mac McGillis (Gerald McRaney) were taking courses in business. In yet another Craig feeling as if he was getting old decided to undergo a face lift. The finale of the season saw Craig and Holowachuck (Matt Mulherne) leaving Camp Hollister for Washington DC to take up a post at the White House. After a bit of finagling, Craig returns to scoop up both McGillis and Gunny (Beverly Archer) to take them to DC with him. I would love to have seen what would have happened after that, but alas the Primetime Gods hate me. MAJOR DAD was cancelled.

You’ve likely noticed a significant update to the gallery. It comes in the form of all twenty four episodes of MAJOR DAD where Jon played the part of Brigadier General Marcus C. Craig. I loved this character. Not only was Jon able to show his comedic side, but he was so perfect as Craig. I loved his interaction with the entire cast. While I’m not a fan of the military life it did a good job in showing what those in the military go through in terms of deployment and the effect that has on the families. Though I doubt they get into the many comical shenanigans as this cast did. What got me about Jon’s performance is that while he was funny, when the need presented itself you could see he brought his seriousness to the issue. The highlight of season two was Jon’s outstanding performance of The Impossible Dream, a piece he performed as the lead character Don Quixote in THE MAN OF LAMANCHA, a role he performed understudy for in 1965 while playing the part of Dr. Carrasco. I’ve heard this piece performed by the likes of Colm Wilkinson, Robert Goulet, and others, but I think my favourite has to be Jon’s, though I’d kill to hear him do it with a full symphony orchestra. I’m including a rip of that part of the episode The Possible Dream where Camp Hollister performed a talent show for the civilians on the base. An interesting bit of trivia, if you look in the crowd at the lady with the long white hair, that is Jon’s wife, Dr. Carol Rosin. Enjoy.
