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.

DYNASTY the complete box set will finally be available to purchase on October 10 and will contain all original 217 episodes. As you might know Jon played the part of Dirk Maurier, one of Alexis Carrington Colby’s (Joan Collins) suitors. Jon appeared in ten episodes from seasons four and seven. While it is being released on DVD, no word of a blu-ray treatment. Here’s hoping, at least, the transfers are good and there’s no artifact lost. Most of the copies I know of that are out there are really bad VHS versions from airings on the old Soap Channel, or other channels. The box set will be available on Amazon for pre-order.

Happy New Year everyone and I hope your Christmas Holidays were the best ever. Mine were great and the New Year started off great for me. Thanks to everyone who has visited the site in the last year and here’s to a wonderful 2015. To start off the year, I have some stills of Jon from his work as Dirk E. Maurier from the ABC television soaper DYNASTY. I think it was great for Jon to have been able to be a part of three very successful series during the 80s. That he played three different characters on three different shows on three different networks was great for him. Those roles and series were; Dirk Maurier on ABC’s DYNASTY, Jeff Munson on CBS’s KNOTS LANDING and Chief Fletcher Daniels on NBC’s HILL STREET BLUES. I can’t think of any actor that had that kind of elasticity when moving between networks, yet Jon did it and created three distinctly different characters. Kudos to him.
