GUEST STARS

Every good cop show exploits a few big-name stars in an attempt to attract viewers, and T.J. Hooker is no exception. But along with featuring established stars, the show also proved to be a hotbed of emerging young talent. Below you'll find a selection of just some of the many guest stars to grace the T.J. Hooker series.


Below is a brand new page of guest stars for your perusing pleasure. You can find our original Guest Stars pages by following the links to pages 2 and 3.

Clive Revill as Andre Bender
Marjoe. The name itself speaks volumes. This childhood evangelist (and subject of the Oscar®-winning documentary Marjoe) broke with his past of spiritual healing and miracles to play the heavy as a guest star on several television series in the 1980s, most notably Matt Huston and The A-Team, where he had a recurring role. Marjoe guest starred in the T.J. Hooker episode "Slay Ride," the perennial Christmas favorite in which he played a man who traveled the United States robbing banks with his partner Troy. Marjoe's animated line delivery and proto-mullet hairstyle make him a standout in a long line of T.J. Hooker baddies. (Marjoe also guest starred in the 5th season episode "Lag Time" playing Jack Lewis.)


Clive Revill as Andre Bender
The de-crowned Miss America, model, singer and film star cut her acting chops in one of the last episodes of T.J. Hooker, "Partners in Death," playing Corrigan's new partner after Hooker splits him up from Stacy because their budding romance has started to get in the way of their job performance.



Clive Revill as Andre Bender
Former NFL great Jim Brown made two notable guest appearances on T.J. Hooker; the first, as evil gambling club owner Barnett in the second-season episode "Raw Deal" stands out as his finest appearance on the show. Manipulating people who have gambling problems, Barnett forces them to play poker at his club and get themselves into so much debt they have no choice but to deliver drugs for him. The action-packed finale includes Hooker and Barnett dangling from a helicopter above the ocean--and only one of them makes it back to shore. His appearance in the fourth-season "Anatomy of a Killing" casts him as an old partner of Hooker's whose daughter has turned to a life of drugs. Thrilling stuff, that.



Clive Revill as Andre Bender
Another fourth season veteran, Michelle Phillips (former '60s heartthrob of the Mamas and Papas) portrayed Teri Sherman, an architect with plans on Hooker's heart in the touching episode "Love Story," in which Hooker risks it all to be by her side. Of course, their romance only lasts one episode, as with all of Hooker's dangerous liaisons.



Clive Revill as Andre Bender
All the way back in the very first episode of T.J. Hooker, "The Protectors," veteran character actor David Hedison portrayed Eric Saxon. You might recognize David from his stint on television's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea way back in the '60s (he played Captain Lee B. Crane), or his appearances on the big screen as Felix Leiter, friend to James Bond (the only actor every to play Leiter twice, opposite both Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton).



Clive Revill as Andre Bender
Perennial '80s television favorite Traci Scoggins, primarily cast as a deceptively intelligent yet beautiful love interest on many a television show, got her chance to play the deceptively intelligent yet beautiful Jill Newmark in the classic Hooker episode "Exercise in Murder." Jill was a television aerobics instructor who dated Jim Corrigan then dropped him like a ton of bricks when her drug-dealing real boyfriend found out she'd gotten herself involved with a cop. Traci went on to star in the smash hit syndicated series Babylon 5 and coincidentally enough, also starred in her own series of aerobics videos.
