It's Boomer from Battlestar Galactica ...


Herbert Jefferson Jr is best known to Cult TV fans as Lieutenant Boomer from the original Battlestar Galactica. He's been seen in many more roles than just Galactica's erstwhile Cylon hunter, though!

Jefferson was a series co-star in Rich Man, Poor Man with Nick Nolte, as well as its sequel Rich Man, Poor Man Book II, the American Revolutionary War mini-series The Bastard, plus Yellow Rose with Sam Elliott and Cybill Shephard, and The Devlin Connection with Rock Hudson and Jack Scalia.

Jefferson has also guest-starred in over 100 episodes of series television, including ER, Sister Sister, Hill Street Blues, Police Story, Airwolf, TJ Hooker, Quincy, The Streets Of San Francisco, White Shadow, Knight Rider, McCloudand Mission Impossible. His most recent TV appearance was in the recurring role of Police Chief Price on NBC's Sunset Beach. His many feature film credits include "Apollo 13", "Outbreak", "Detroit 9000", "Black Gun", "The Slams", "One Dozen", and Roger Corman's "Private Duty Nurses" (which marked his feature film debut).

Herb's extensive theatre credits include two Pulitzer Prize winning plays, "The Great White Hope" and "No Place To Be Somebody". He was directed by Mike Nichols in the David Rabe play "Streamers", which went on to win Best New American Play of the Year by the New York Drama Critics.

Although currently a resident of Southern California, Jefferson is originally from Jersey City, New Jersey, where he attended high school and college. He is a New York trained actor studying at the Herbert Berghof Studio, The Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg, and an alumnus of New York's American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He has appeared in productions on Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off Broadway, including several plays at Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival/Public Theatre.

In his spare time Herb has been, and continues to be, an active supporter and volunteer with the US military by way of the USO, the Paralyzed Veterans Association, Operation Standown, US Navy Public Affairs, and the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. He is also a 25 year volunteer with the Special Olympics.

Having had one previous appearance at Cult TV, in Southport in 2002, Herb triumphantly returned for Cult TV 2006 at Hemsby.
