Richard Dean Anderson,
born Jan. 23, 1950 in Minnesota, has recently regained
his 80's popularity, at least in the sci-fi circle, for
his role as General Jack in the TV series Stargate SG-1

Anderson had the hearts of 80's fans with his role as
Angus MacGyver (yes, Angus, now you know why he went by

"General Hospital" from 1976 to 1981. There was
also an 80's TV series called "Seven Brides for Seven

(1984) and Ordinary Heroes (1988). Quick Fact:
