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’ve been a busy little bee getting Jon’s HILL STREET BLUES episodes capped and in the gallery. I have season three for you this time. Infamous for Jon’s characteristic Fletcher Daniels bluster and for the episode where poor Daniels had to undergo rabies shots due to having been bitten by a rat (Moon Over Uranus), and my favourite episode Rain of Terror and the scene where Daniels is playing racquet ball when Frank Furrillo (Daniel J. Travanti) comes in and gets reamed by Daniels. I also have a treat of a couple of stills from that episode. Enjoy.

I’ve finished Jon’s work from HILL STREET BLUES season two. This was the season where Fletcher Daniels underwent surgery for his piles. Further proof of Jon’s comedic timing that came to bear later on in MAJOR DAD where he starred as Major General Marcus Craig.

I’m finally at the point where I’m screencapping Jon’s work on HILL STREET BLUES where for seven years, he played the pompous Chief-Of-Police Fletcher P. Daniels. I remember when I used to watch this show when it was on the network original airing, I always used to wait for Daniels to show up to make Frank Furillo’s (Daniel J. Travanti) day a complete and utter hell. There was always something Daniels had to bitch about. This is probably where I found Jon. I thought he was so handsome and I loved how he played Daniels with such cockiness, not to forget the weekly strutting. The show was a landmark in the annals of television in the quality of the writing and the ensemble actors that were showcased weekly by the excellence of series creator Steven Bochco, and who can forget the main theme by Mike Post. I used to love the relationship between Furillo and Joyce Davenport (Veronica Hamel). I loved it when she called him “Pizza Man.” Travanti and Hamel were so gorgeous together and I so wanted to look like her. Anyway I’m just so happy to finally be adding Jon’s work in HILL STREET BLUES to the gallery. Please enjoy.
