Greg Evigan (born October 14, 1953 in South Amboy, New Jersey), better known as Greg Evigan, is an actor who was a teen idol during the late 1970s and early 1980s. He auditioned for, and got roles in Jesus Christ Superstar and Grease (where he got the leading character). He married Pamela Serpe on June 3, 1979, and they have three children.
Evigan is better known for his work in three television hits: 1979's B.J. and the Bear, where he starred as B.J. McKay, a truck driver whose best friend was a chimpanzee named Bear, 1987's My Two Dads in which a teenage girl is raised by two past boyfriends of her deceased mother together when it can't be determined which is the father (My Two Dads lasted until 1990), and the mid-1990s sci-fi hit TekWar based on a series of books by Star Trek elder statesman William Shatner (who also co-starred). TekWar originated as a series of television movies in 1994 and then became a series in 1995.
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.
