Jack Stauffer has worked professionally in the television, film, and stage industries for the past thirty-five years.
As an actor, he is best remembered for creating the role of Chuck Tyler on ABC's award winning daytime serial "All My Children" and as Bojay on "Battlestar Galactica".
When Jack joined the cast of "Battlestar Galactica" as Bojay midway through their season, he was reunited with series star Richard Hatch. Both actors were original cast members of "All My Children". Jack arrived aboard the Battlestar Pegasus along with Anne Lockhart (Sheba). He appeared in four out of the last five episodes. For the past two years, Jack has closely collaborated with Richard in his attempt to revive "Battlestar Galactica". He co-stars in "Battlestar Galactica: The 2nd Coming", Richard's promotional trailer. Recently Universal/USA productions announced plans to revive Battlestar Galactica on FOX Network. A two-hour pilot film produced by Tom DeSanto is in pre-production. Both actors are extremely optimistic about participating in the new show.
Jack also recently collaborated with Richard again in a trailer for a new science fiction project, "The Great War of Magellan".
Jack has starred in pilots for his own television series: "Alex and the Doberman Gang", "The Incredible Island", and "Mobile Medics", appeared in Emmy Award movies of the week such as "Police Story" and "Eleanor and Franklin", and co-starred in the feature film "Chattanooga Choo Choo".
Jack has made guest appearances in over forty different prime-time television shows, most recently appearing in episodes of: "Arrest and Trial", "Melrose Place", "Lois and Clark - The New Adventures of Superman", "Viper", "Designing Women", "Quantum Leap", "Perfect Strangers", "FBI - Untold Stories", and others. He has also filmed over 250 commercials.
For many years Jack performed regularly in many Southern California theatre venues. He recently co-starred in "My Fair Lady" with Broadway and Los Angeles "Phantom of the Opera" star Dale Kristien. Other recent starring roles include "The Music Man" (four times), "Oliver", "Annie Get Your Gun", "Guys and Dolls", "Fiorello", and "Can Can".
Jack is also experienced as a producer and director. From 1992 - 1999 he was the co-director of the Northridge, CA Young Performers; a program designed to develop positive acting skills in young actors. He directed their winter scenes workshop and served as dialogue and music interpretation director for their summer musical.
He has also been a director at the Westchester Playhouse in Los Angeles where he staged "Mister Roberts". He is also the co-founder of APTA Theatre in North Hollywood.
In late 2000 Jack left his home of twenty-five years in Los Angeles and relocated to the Monterey Peninsula. There, he quickly established himself as both an actor and a director. In 2001 he starred at the Magic Circle Center in their productions of "Sylvia" and "Accomplice" breaking that theatre's attendance records on both occasions. In 2002 he directed Magic Circle Center's premiere offering "Lend Me A Tenor". This production, garnering smash reviews and hailed by more than one newspaper as being one of the best comedies ever presented on the Monterey Peninsula, completely sold out and had to be extended.
Jack is also an accomplished singer / entertainer. His 45-minute cabaret, "How Come I Never Got The Girl?" featuring songs from musicals he has starred in wrapped around a good-natured roasting of Richard Hatch is a convention favorite.
Jack's talents range outside the entertainment industry. For many years he taught tennis professionally in the San Fernando Valley region of Southern California. Former student, Meilin Tu was the 1995 U.S. Open Junior Champion. He served as Director of Tennis at the Northridge Recreational Facility from 1994 till 2000.
