Biography

Tall, pleasant-looking and affable romantic leading man of TV-movies ("The Last Convertible" 1979, "Passion Flower" 1986), miniseries ("John Steinbeck's 'East of Eden'" 1981) and westerns ("Wild Times" 1980, "I Married Wyatt Earp" 1983). Boxleitner is best known as the star of the TV series "How the West Was Won" (ABC, 1978-79) in which he played James Arness's nephew, a fugitive from the law in the Old West. He went on to headline the short-lived period action show "Bring 'Em Back Alive" (CBS, 1982-83), and was a secret agent opposite Kate Jackson in the tongue-in-cheek espionage series "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" (CBS, 1983-87). In 1994, he joined the syndicated series "Babylon 5" as the space station commander. Since his feature debut in the mid-70s, Boxleitner has specialized in playing likable good guys and adventure heroes; he portrayed Jumpin' Joe Dugan, teammate and best friend to the legendary ballplayer in "The Babe" (1992).
