He also starred as Carlton Shaw, the CIA liaison and boss who reinstates Steven and Samantha (Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw) back into the field, in the short-lived action thriller spy drama Undercovers, in 2010.

McRaney, who spent more than 16 years as the star of several network series including Simon and Simon, Major Dad, The Promised Land, Deadwood, Jericho and JAG, continues to enjoy a blossoming career.

He made his Broadway debut in the New York premiere of Horton Foote's play Dividing The Estate and went on to film Get Low, an independent feature which also starrs Oscar winner Robert Duvall, Golden Globe winner Bill Murray, Oscar Award-winning Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black.

He followed that with a co-starring role in the big-screen action-adventure feature film The A-Team, with Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper.

His first television role was in an episode of Night Gallery. Four appearances on Gunsmoke were followed by steady work as a character actor in television movies including Where the Ladies Go, Women in White, The Law, Roots II and in such classic series as The Incredible Hulk, The Rockford Files, Police Woman and How the West Was Won.

McRaney has appeared in a long list of other highly rated television projects. These include the telefilms Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, A Stranger Beside Me, Not My Son, Deadly Vows, Dream of Murder, and Someone She Knows.

His miniseries credits include Shake, Rattle and Roll, and Nothing Lasts Forever, opposite Brooke Shields, Gail O'Grady and Vanessa Williams.

His talents also extend to the other side of the camera, where his directing credits include Simon and Simon, Major Dad, and the television movie Love and Curses, on which he also served as executive producer and co-starred with his wife, actress Delta Burke.

McRaney and Burke currently reside in Los Angeles.
