Actor. He will perhaps be best remembered for playing Colonel Roderick Decker, pursuer of "The A Team" in the TV series of the same title. Born William Lance LeGault in Chicago, his father was of French-Canadian origin, his mother was of Slavic-Jewish parentage, he received an athletic scholarship to play football at the University of Wichita and while attending there, he earned a degree in Business. He gravitated to the film industry and due to his sturdy physique, he was initially a stuntman for Elvis Presley in the pictures "Kissin' Cousins" (1964) and "Roustabout" (1964). This opened the door for him to gradually land acting parts in both features, as well as television and with his low, graveled-voice which he possessed, he was usually cast in military officer and menacing roles. In addition to "The A Team", LeGault had played Colonel Buck Greene in TV series "Magnum, P.I." and Alamo Joe Rogan in "Werewolf" (1987 to 1988). (bio by: C.S.)
