Billy Campbell

American actor Billy Campbell was born on July 7, 1959 in Charlottesville, Virginia. He came to prominence playing Luke Fuller on Dynasty (1981), the gay lover of character Steven Carrington, on what was then the top-rated TV show in America. He followed this up playing Detective Joey Indelli on Crime Story (1986). He lost out on the role of William Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) to Jonathan Frakes, but won the title role in the sci-fi movie The Rocketeer (1991). In 1993, he was cast in the lead of the detective series Moon Over Miami (1993), but it was soon canceled. He then played Dr. Jon Fielding, another gay character, on the controversial miniseries Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City (1993) and its sequels, but arguably is best known for his role as Rick Sammler on Once and Again (1999). Subsequently, he had recurring role on The O.C. (2003) before playing Jordan Collier on the sci-fi series The 4400 (2004). He also appeared in the 2009 revival of Melrose Place (2009).
