  Summary  

Jack Lee Ging is an American actor best known for his role as General Harlan 'Bull' Fullbright in the NBC television series The A-Team.

  Biography  

 Early life
Before turning to an acting career, Ging served in the United States Marine Corps and played college football at the University of Oklahoma at Norman during the 1950s.

 Career
Ging played the arrogant Lt. Ted Quinlan on the adventure/detective series Riptide from 1984 to 1985, in which he was eventually killed off to free him up to appear in The A-Team (Ironically, in his final Riptide episode, he was killed by Carl Franklin, the sidekick of Colonel Decker - Fulbright's predecessor in The A-Team).

His character was one of only two characters to die on-screen during the series. Ging was brought in to try and ease things on set, where stars George Peppard and Mr. T often didn't get along; Ging having worked with Peppard previously.

In 1981 he also played Tracy Winslow in the episode "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys"
on the ABC show The Greatest American Hero.

Ging had also played Will Coleman in the 1975 adaptation of the film Where The Red Fern Grows, he had the starring role in the war film Sniper's Ridge and appeared sporadically as police contact Lt. Dan Ives on Mike Connors's Mannix in the early 1970s.

At the age of twenty-eight, Ging was cast in the role of Dan Wright, along with George Nader (1921–2002) as Dr. Glenn Barton, in the NBC adventure series The Man and the Challenge, which ran for thirty-six episodes during the 1959-1960 season. About this time, he also appeared occasionally in the role of Beau McCloud on the NBC western series, Tales of Wells Fargo, starring his fellow Oklahoman, Dale Robertson.

In 1960, Ging appeared in one episode of The Twilight Zone: "The Whole Truth".

From 1962-1964, he appeared as a young psychiatrist in NBC's 62-episode The Eleventh Hour medical drama. His costars were Wendell Corey, the first season, and thereafter Ralph Bellamy.

He also appeared on The Bionic Woman, Wiseguy, B.J. and the Bear, and The Highwayman. His movie credits include the Clint Eastwood westerns Hang 'Em High, Play Misty for Me, and High Plains Drifter.

Jack Ging made two guest appearances as villains on The A-Team (in the first season episode "A Small And Deadly War" and the second season's "Bad Time On The Border") before being given the role of General Fullbright, one of the army leaders whose thankless task was to capture The A-Team. In the final episode of The A-Teams fourth season, 'The Sound Of Thunder', the team were forced to fight on the same side as Fullbright whilst on a mission in Vietnam, searching for Fullbright's long lost daughter. Fullbright was captured and tortured by an enemy soldier; the team rescued him, but he was fatally shot during the escape.

 Personal life
He has four children from three marriages. He has two younger children from his third marriage to Ramona "Apache" Ging. He has one child each from previous marriages to Katie Ging (1952–1954) and Gretchen Graening Ging (1956–1972). He lives in a gated community outside Los Angeles near a country club, where he frequently plays golf.
