BRUCE MCGILL (Jonas Cantrell) has been a constant and memorable screen presence since he drove his motorcycle up the Delta House stairs as "D-Day” in National Lampoon's Animal House. Throughout his career, McGill has consistently received rave reviews for his standout performances and shows no sign of slowing down. He was recently seen in Obsessed, starring Beyonce and Idris Elba, and recently completed filming Fair Game, starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.

McGill has appeared in more than 80 motion pictures, including Oliver Stone's W, Vantage Point, Runaway Jury, Matchstick Men and Cinderella Man. His appearance as Southern attorney Ron Motley in Michael Mann's The Insider garnered high praise from critics and audiences alike. Other film work includes The Sum of All Fears, Shallow Hal, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Legally Blonde II, My Cousin Vinny, The Last Boy Scout, Silkwood and Exit Wounds. McGill's list of television credits is equally impressive, as he has starred in some of HBO's most critically acclaimed productions. He portrayed controversial journalist Peter Arnett in "Live From Baghdad,” painted a chilling portrait of LBJ cabinet member George Ball in "Path to War” and brought legendary New York Yankees manager Ralph Houk to life in "61.” He has made memorable guest appearances on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” "The Practice,” "Gideon's Crossing,” "Home Improvement,” "Star Trek: Voyager,” "The Commish,” "Quantum Leap,” "Miami Vice” and many others. 

On the small screen, McGill may be best known as Jack Dalton, troublemaking best friend to "MacGyver,” whom he portrayed for six seasons. 

Originally from San Antonio, Texas, McGill began his acting career on stage in elementary school. After earning his B.F.A. in acting from the University of Texas at Austin, he made his professional debut as a member of Rhode Island's Trinity Square Repertory Company. After relocating to New York City, McGill began a long association with the New York Shakespeare Festival, appearing in such productions as "Hamlet” (produced by the legendary Joseph Papp) and "Henry V.” He also played Iago opposite Raul Julia's Othello for the NYSF's Shakespeare in the Park series. McGill starred on Broadway in "My One and Only” with Tommy Tune and Twiggy.  During the recent Writers Guild strike, McGill returned to the stage after 22 years with an acclaimed portrayal of Orson Welles in "Orson's Shadow” at the Pasadena Playhouse.

McGill currently lives with his wife Gloria just outside Los Angeles, where he indulges his passions for golfing, sailing and music whenever possible.
