Jon Cypher Online
EST 2014 | a tribute site to actor jon cypher
Welcome to MAVERICK JON CYPHER ONLINE @ 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.

There is a finished script for the new version of the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE reboot. Apparently the new film might follow in line with the cartoon series of the same name and not Jon’s 1987 film. AMC Theatre News has this on the new film. For me, there will by only one Duncan Man-At-Arms, and that is Jon. I know, “Reboots are done all the time,” but I still think the one with Jon is the best. Jon starred with Dolph Lundgren, Frank Langella, Meg Foster, Chelsea Field, Robert Duncan McNeill and our Jon Cypher.


I was able to get a hold of four more stills from Jon’s film MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE where Jon played the part of Duncan, Man-At-Arms. Please enjoy.



I just found out that there might be a reboot in the making for MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. As most of you remember Jon played the part of Duncan, Man-At-Arms in the 1987 film also starring Dolph Lungren, Frank Langella, Chelsea Field, Meg Foster, Billy Barty, Robert Duncan McNeill, Christina Pickles, and someone else whose name I cannot remember…. Anyway, here’s a video from the Youtube show AMC Theatres Mail Bag talking about the possibility.


Another addition, this time Jon’s guest starring role on the CBS television series JAG as Frank Burnett. The episode had to deal with the lead character’s father. Jon looked dapper as always. He aged very well and I love the clothes they had him in. Not ‘old guy-ish’. Ironically Jon’s wife in this episode was played by actress Christina Pickles. Anyone remember where they’ve heard that name before? Yep, Jon and Christina starred in the 1987 live action film MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE where Jon played the part of Duncan Man-At-Arns and Christina played the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull. Small world. I’m wondering if they had any ‘war’ stories to share?
