“1-Adam-12, 1-Adam-12, please respond!”

Please welcome acclaimed actor Kent McCord to Retro Con 2021!

Kent is best known for his role as Officer Jim Reed in the classic 60s/70s TV series ‘Adam-12’. The show followed LAPD officers Jim Reed and his superior Officer Pete Malloy, as they ride the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit, 1-Adam-12 (one of TV’s coolest rides!). The series ran for an impressive 174 episodes from 1968 to 1975, and is still gathering new fans to this day. The character of Officer Jim Reed also appeared in other series within the same “universe” as Adam-12, such as ‘Dragnet’ and ‘Emergency!‘.

Kent also had a pivotal reoccurring part on the hit Sci-Fi Channel show ‘Farscape’, where he played Jack Crichton, father of lead show character John Crichton. His episodes of the show were among the most emotional of the series. He also played the part of “Jack the Ancient”, an alien that took the visage of John’s father to test his reaction to an illusion of Earth.

You may also remember Kent from his roles in such movies and tv shows as Airplane 2: The Sequel (“So you see, both Dunn and I were under Oveur, even though I was under Dunn.”), Predator 2, Galactica 1980, Return of the Living Dead III, SeaQuest DSV, and much more!

Mr. McCord will be available to meet at Retro Con on both Saturday and Sunday (autograph and photo op prices will be posted closer to show time). He will also be participating in a Q&A panel at the show, with the day and time to be determined.

**Kent will also be celebrating his birthday at Retro Con on Sunday! Be sure to stop by and wish him a Happy Birthday!!**
