Bio

William Lucking is an American actor and writer best known for his role as Colonel Lynch in the first season of the television action series The A-Team, from 1983-1984.

Lucking's character was the commander of Fort Bragg, which housed the stockade from which the team escaped. The Colonel pursued them throughout the first season. (He was mentioned to still be in pursuit of the team at the start of the second season, though was never actually seen).

As from the second season he was replaced by Lance LeGault, who played his successor, Colonel Lynch.

Lucking's imposing figure and rough-hewn features lent themselves well to roles as tough bikers (Hell's Belles, Wild Rovers), craggy cowboys (The Magnificent Seven Ride!, The Return of a Man Called Horse), and determined military and police officers (Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, K-PAX).

His film work also includes appearances in 10, Stripes, The River Wild, The Limey, Erin Brockovich, Red Dragon, The Rundown and Slipstream.

On television he has had starring or featured roles in Outlaws as Harland Pike and The A-Team as Colonel Lynch. He has been a mainstay on episodic TV for three decades, appearing in such classics as Mission: Impossible, The Partridge Family, Bonanza, Kung Fu, Gunsmoke, The Rockford Files, The Waltons, Hulk, M*A*S*H, Knight Rider, Magnum, P.I., and Murder, She Wrote.

He continued to appear in such shows as NYPD Blue, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, JAG, Walker, Texas Ranger, The X Files, ER, The Pretender, Profiler, The West Wing, Night Stalker, Commander In Chief, Cold Case and Smith.

Since losing his wife Mimi to breast cancer, he has sought solace as a writer. While continuing as a busy character actor he has created several short stories, screenplays, and a novel, Casual Labor.
