Awww. :( Colonel Decker on The A-Team and Buck Green on Magnum, PI. The man had one hell of a voice.

RIP.

RIP Lance. The badassery was strong in that one.

He was the leader of the Borellian Nomen on the original BSG, wasn't he?

Yes, he was. You couldn't miss that voice.

He did have a great voice. He also used to do the voiceover on the beginning of Airwolf. Rest in peace Mr. LeGault.

Yes he was. He was also Bootis, Vella's brother in The Lost Warrior, the first single episode of that season.

And he was also an "oviner" on that episode that's like a Western in space with metal cowboy hats. I think he was in every Glen A. Larson production. ETA: Already covered by RandyS.

He was one of the first character actor names I remembered because he was on so many shows I liked when I was a kid. And auntie is right, you couldn't miss that voice whether it was under heavy makeup or in a Pace Picante Sauce commercial. Sorry to see him go.

I know him chiefly as the killer in COMA, original version.

Pity that his only Trek appearance was as a Klingon who had maybe a minute of screen time... :sigh:

I loved him in the A-Team and was hoping that he'd get a cameo in the movie. He was great in Magnum, too.

RIP Mr. LeGault.

Great character actor. I'll miss him. As has been pointed out, he was in everything.
