Okay, here's a really cool one!

I'm gonna go it a bit backwards though...

Peter Egan guest starred as Frederick on the 1994 TV-movie "MacGyver: Trail to Doomsday", with Richard Dean Anderson in the title role as MacGyver, of course!
Peter Egan also guest starred on a British show that ran almost exactly 20 years before MacGyver did. And for the same amount of time- 7 years. From 1965 to 1972.

What's really ironic but really cool is the name of the show.
"The Troubleshooters".
But that's not all. Get this-
This show also starred Ray Barrett as "Peter Thornton"!!! biggrin.gif smile.gif

I wonder if Lee David Zlotoff ever saw this show... wink.gif sak.gif duct.gif

Here's another one that I don't think has been mentioned yet.

Northern Exposure starred both Adam Arkin and Anthony Edwards over several eppys apiece.

This leads to two connections:

Northern Exposure starred Adam Arkin over several episodes.
Adam Arkin starred in several eppys of TWW.
TWW also starred Renee Estevez over several eppys.
Renee starred in the Bushmaster eppy of MacGyver.

Anthony Edwards starred in ER.
ER also starred Dana Elcar in a few eppys.
Dana was our beloved Pete on MacGyver.

I haven't seen Northern Exposure in years... anyone else remember this *very* quirky series??

I just turned on the TV and saw Dalton James on Beverley Hills 90210 surprise.gif

Did a quick check in IMBd...

Beverley Hills 90210 starred Dalton James as Mark Reese for 12 episodes.
Dalton James also played SAM in MacGyver

Well, this is kinda related- I just discovered an interesting connection between Bruce McGill and Wai Kulff! (Other than the obvious!) wink.gif
Both guest starred multiple times on MacGyver, of course-
but both also share an Indiana Jones connection!

Bruce McGill voiced the character of CIA Agent Simon Turner in the 1999 "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine" video game
and Kai Wulff voiced the characters of Richter and Soldier 3 in the 2003 "Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb" video game! Just thought that was cool.

Okay- I dug this thread back out because I've been wanting to make a connection with a particular actress I keep finding on IMDB when I look for MacGyver.

Believe it or not, there's a real actress named Mary MacGyver! biggrin.gif
(http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1272435/)
Come on- I just gotta do this one! smile.gif

She's apparently only appeared in 1 production of any kind- the 1989 movie "Mind Trap"
She appeared in this with Lyle Waggoner, best known as Steve Trevor on "Wonder Woman"- but he also guest starred on an episode of "Hardcastle & McCormick"-

and Dana Elcar, Pete Thornton on "MacGyver", has also guest starred on "Hardcastle & McCormick".

Okay there you go- very tenuous connection, but there nonetheless! smile.gif

I watched Blowout last night.

MacGyver (played by RDA) solicited help from a dump truck driver (played by Don Davis).

In Stargate SG1, O'Neil (played by RDA) answered to General Hammond (played by Don S. Davis).

Jack Nicholson was with Rod Steiger in Mars Attacks
Rod Steiger and I were in The Kid.

So he appeared as actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. on MacGyver?

By the way, Burgess Meredith was also The Penguin on the Batman tv show, so that also links MacGyver with Adam West, who starred as Batman!

A reminder here that degrees should be based on the TV show or movie, not the actors.

e.g.

The Australian drama series The Flying Doctors starred Lenore Smith.
Lenore Smith guest starred in 2 episodes of Farscape
Farscape starred Ben Browder who went on to star in SG:1
SG: 1 starred Richard Dean Anderson, who played MacGyver

?????? Is something here not listing actors in a TV show or movie to connect with RDA? Or should we highlight the TV show/Movie so all will know it is a TV show?

Charlton Heston starred in "The Colbys" with Stephanie Beacham
Stephanie starred in an episode of "Legend" with RDA
who played "MacGyver"

Your connecting James Earl Jones to RDA... Actor to actor

A show to show connection would look like this...

Will and Grace guest-starred Kevin Bacon
Kevin Bacon co-starred in A few good men
A few good men co-starred Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise starred in Top gun
Top gun co-starred Anthony Edwards
Anthony Edwards starred in E.R.

James Earl Jones also appeared in Will & Grace, or should I have said Will & Grace guest starred James Earl Jones? Or are you just connecting TV Shows/Movies to the show MacGyver? It's early here, and I'm just waking up with my morning tea.

We're not connecting to RDA. Thats my point.. We're connecting to MacGyver.

That means any actor who has appeared in MacGyver can be used as a link to another show.. not just RDA

A long time ago, not necessarily in a galaxy far, far away, George Takei starred as Lt. Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek.
And of course, he also guest starred in "The Wish Child" episode of MacGyver, thus connecting William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForrest Kelley, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig and Majel Barrett with MacGyver- and of course, James Doohan (Montgomery "Scotty" Scott) adds to the connection by guest starring as Speedy on "Harry's Will".

Choose a TV show.. then link it to MacGyver in 6 connections or less.

We can probably avoid the obvious SG-1, happy days, knight rider, ST:TNG single connections.

Here's an example:

Dukes of Hazzard stared John Schneider.
John voiced a character in King of the Hill
King of the Hill had a character voiced by Lane Smith.
Lane Smith starred in Lois and Clark with Teri Hatcher.
Teri Hatcher played Penny Parker in MacGyver

The movie The Guardian co-starred John Heard as a Coast Guard officer. (GREAT flick, BTW!!)
John Heard is a regular recurring guest star on CSI:Miami (he plays Kenwall Duquesne, Calleigh's dad). Calleigh is played by Emily Procter.
Emily also appeared on The West Wing.
TWW featured Renee Estevez in a recurring role.
Renee appeared in the "Bushmaster" eppy of MacGyver.

And now for another one...

Dances With Wolves starred Kevin Costner.
Kevin also starred in The Guardian with John Heard!

So we can now connect every one of Kevin Costner's movies to MacGyver!!

And here's another one:

The Butterfly Effect starred Ashton Kutcher, who appeared in The Guardian alongside Kevin Costner. The Guardian also featured John Heard... etc. etc. So now every one of Ashton Kutcher's movies also connects to MacGyver!



Do not pity the dead. Pity the living, and above all, those who live without love. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

You don't eat things like that, you call pest control! Kate in The Gauntlet

What's that?
