"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

For all you fans of the original Battlestar Galactica...the name "Bojay" instantly brings to mind a certain pilot from the Battlestar Pegasus who along with Lt. Sheba (Anne Lockhart) found themselves added to the cast of Battlestar Galactica with the two part episode "The Living Legend" starring of course Lloyd Bridges as the legendary Commander Cain.

That being said, the pilot in question...or rather the actor portraying him is none other than Jack Stauffer...for viewers of televsion from the 70s on saw this man's face over and over again...and I don't mean just vintage television either (if you can call 70s or 80s television "vintage") I myself cannot, but I digress...from his start on the soap "All My Children" (not his absolute start, but his first big turn on television...well the credits run loooong...from over 250 commercials...and do I dare do it?

Yes I dare....

I'm going to list all those television credits just to give all of you the scoop on the scope!

THOSE are just the television shows (including Battlestar Galactica of course).

I haven't even touched movies of the week, pilots, feature films or his stage work.

And, that leads into the title..."Jack's Back" right?

Well, for the last couple of years Mr. Stauffer has been devoting his attention to the aforementioned stage (directing & acting) and has found much success with that...however it took him out of Los Angeles and the bright lights of Hollywood...till..now.

Actually the last month saw him return to L.A. to film the short 'Sons of Guns"...did he portray a pilot? nope...did he portray a scientist...no. How about a Priest...uh-uh.

How about a...a psychotic antique weapons dealer?!?

Yes believe it or not...that was the part he was playing in this this film...but who says he always has to play the nice guy.

The film was directed by Tanner Boyajian for Dark Burn Media...so you want to catch that at upcoming film festivals and hopefully online soon.

Hey if you don't believe me, here are the pictures to prove it!

I never thought Jack could look so menacing...

Go find Jack at his site website at jackstauffer.com and you can also check out Dark Burn media at darkburnmedia.com

Keep the home fires burning & most importanly KEEP THE FAITH!

Some of these shows go back a ways, but they were all great shows and great roles.

Gotta' think it's funny one of Bojay's shows was called "Viper".
