Biography

This tall (6'4"), muscular and square-jawed player quickly established himself as a TV star playing a dashing Navy lawyer assigned to the Judge Advocate General Corps on "JAG" (NBC, 1995-96; CBS, 1997-2005). Not just another poster boy, the stage-trained Elliott lent an air of intelligence, integrity and low-key confidence to his characterization. He proved credible playing thoughtful, action-oriented professionals on several TV series including "Fly By Night" (CBS, 1991) as a pilot for a financially strapped charter company and a likeable cop on the syndicated revival of "The Untouchables".
