Gregory Ralph "Greg" Evigan (born October 14, 1953) is an American actor known for the television series B. J. and the Bear, My Two Dads, P.S. I Luv U and TekWar.

Personal life

Evigan was born in South Amboy, New Jersey, the son of Barbara Elizabeth, a homemaker, and Ralph Milan Evigan, an electrician. He grew up in Sayreville, New Jersey, and attended Sayreville War Memorial High School, graduating in 1971. In 2007 he was inducted into the school's Alumni Hall of Fame for his contributions to the arts. Evigan is married to dancer Pamela C. Serpe and has three children. His youngest daughter Briana is the lead actress in Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up: All In. Another daughter is actress Vanessa Lee Evigan. Vanessa was in the Christmas movie Holiday in Handcuffs, with Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hart (Vanessa portrayed Hart's sister). Evigan's son Jason is the front man of an LA-based band called After Midnight Project and wrote the song "Perfect Day" for Legally Blonde's soundtrack.


Evigan was a teen idol during the late 1970s and early 1980s. He auditioned for and landed roles in Jesus Christ Superstar and Grease (in which he played the leading character).

Evigan is best known for his work in three hit television series:

  • 1979–1981 B. J. and the Bear, where he starred as Billie Joe "B.J." McKay, a truck driver whose best friend was a chimpanzee named Bear;
  • 1987–1990 My Two Dads in which a teenage girl is raised by two past boyfriends of her deceased mother together when it cannot be determined which is the father;
  • mid-1990s TekWar, a science fiction series based on a series of books by Star Trek actor William Shatner (who also co-starred). TekWar originated as a series of two-hour television movies in 1994, and then became a series of hour-long episodes that ran in 1995-96.

However, Evigan appeared in other productions as well.

It was with B. J. and the Bear (which actually began in 1978 as a made-for-television movie) that Evigan reached pop-star status, and he began receiving cover from such magazines as Tiger Beat, Teen Beat and many other magazines geared towards teenaged girls. In 1980 he posed bare-chested for a pin-up wall poster.

Evigan was played by the actor Mark Gatiss in several When Insects Attack segments in 1998 and When Things Get Knocked Over segments in 1999 episodes of the British television sketch show This Morning with Richard Not Judy.
