Timothy P. Dunigan (born August 2, 1955) is an American actor who is best known for having played the lead role of Captain Jonathan Power in Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future. He also played con-man 1st Lt. Templeton "The Face-Man" Peck in the pilot for the 1980s hit The A-Team, but was replaced by Dirk Benedict for the series. The reason given for him being replaced was it was felt that he was too young for the role, though series creators Frank Lupo and Stephen J. Cannell had wanted Benedict from the start, but were overridden by the network executives.
According to the actor himself, "I look[ed] even younger on camera than I am. So it was difficult to accept me as a veteran of the Vietnam War, which ended when I was a sophomore in high school."
He played the role of the titular frontiersman as a young man in The Wonderful World of Disney's 1988 miniseries Davy Crockett: Rainbow in the Thunder. He had guest-starring television roles on several hit series: Cheers; Murder, She Wrote; Empty Nest; Beverly Hills, 90210; and JAG. During a phone interview for G4's Attack Of The Show! program, it was revealed that Dunigan quit acting and became a mortgage broker following his role in JAG in 2002.
