Early years[edit]

Evigan was born in South Amboy, New Jersey, the son of Ralph Milan Evigan, an electrician, and his wife, Barbara Elizabeth Evigan, a homemaker.[1] He grew up in Sayreville, New Jersey, and attended Sayreville War Memorial High School, graduating in 1971.[citation needed]

In 2007 he was inducted into the school's Alumni Hall of Fame for his contributions to the arts.[2][3]


Evigan is married to dancer Pamela C. Serpe and has three children. Their youngest daughter Briana is the lead actress in Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up: All In. Briana and Greg appeared together in the 2015 Hallmark Channel holiday movie Once Upon a Holiday. Another daughter is actress Vanessa Lee Evigan, who appeared in Holiday in Handcuffs. Evigan's son Jason is the front man of an LA-based band called After Midnight Project.


Evigan auditioned for and landed a role in the Broadway show "Jesus Christ Superstar." He also played the lead as part of a touring companies production of Grease.[citation needed]

He is best known for his work in three hit television series:

  • 1979–1981 B. J. and the Bear, where he starred as Billie Joe "B.J." McKay, a truck driver whose best friend was a chimpanzee named Bear;
  • 1987–1990 My Two Dads in which a teenage girl is raised by two past boyfriends of her deceased mother together when it cannot be determined which is the father;
  • mid-1990s TekWar, a science fiction series based on a series of books by Star Trek actor William Shatner (who also co-starred). TekWar originated as a series of two-hour television movies in 1994, and then became a series of hour-long episodes that ran in 1995-96.

Evigan was played by actor Mark Gatiss in several When Insects Attack segments in 1998 and When Things Get Knocked Over segments in 1999 episodes of the British television sketch show This Morning with Richard Not Judy.[citation needed]
