Gregory Neale Harrison (born May 31, 1950 in Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, California) is an American actor. He is probably best known for his role as Chandler in the 1987 cult favorite North Shore and Dr. George Alonzo 'Gonzo' Gates, the young surgeon on the CBS series Trapper John, M.D.. He was also the title character on the 1977-78 sci-fi series Logan's Run, after which he played the role of Levi Zendt on the 1978 NBC miniseries Centennial and had a situation comedy on CBS called Family Man, in which he played a single-father fireman who was rearing three children.
Harrison's later role as stripper John Phillips in the 1981 TV movie For Ladies Only made him a favorite with women and gay men in the 1980s. He spoofed that role in the 1986 miniseries Fresno where his character appeared shirtless at every opportunity. Harrison was a regular in the final season (1989-90) of Falcon Crest. In 1996, he starred opposite Eric Roberts in It's My Party, a film based on the true events of a man diagnosed with AIDS who planned a two-day party to say goodbye to his friends and family and then took his own life with pills.
He also starred in the WB Network's Safe Harbor and has made guest appearances on numerous other shows such as Touched by an Angel, Judging Amy, Reunion, Joey and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
For the last few years he has played the lead in a touring version of the musical Chicago and was the male lead in each film of the Au Pair trilogy.
Since 1981, Harrison has been married to actress Randi Oakes (of CHiPs fame). The couple have four children, three girls and a boy. He lived in Gold Beach, Oregon, for 15 years and now resides in Eugene. He enjoys surfing and golf.
