RIP Lance LeGault

Lance LeGault, a character actor who began his career as a stunt double for Elvis Presley and went on to play a long line of gravelly voiced military types in films including "Stripes" and "Iron Eagle" and on TV shows including "The A-Team," died Monday, Sept. 10, in Los Angeles. He was 77.

LeGault racked up smallscreen credits during the 1980s, recurring as Ray Bonning on "Dynasty," Al Halliday on "Dallas" and Col. Buck Greene on "Magnum, P.I." and appearing on "The Dukes of Hazzard," "Knight Rider," "Simon and Simon," "Murder, She Wrote" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation," to name a few.

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?

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.

Re: RIP Lance LeGault

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

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.
