  • Great actor! He had perfect chemistry with Gerald McRaney in Simon & Simon. Right now I am very much enjoying his hunting show on OLNTV called, The Bird Hunter's Journal.

    I first laid eyes on Jameson Parker on Simon & Simon. I think he was perfect as AJ and had great chemistry with his co-star, Gerald McRaney. This soon became my favorite show of all time mainly because of that chemistry.
    I'm not sure why Mr. Parker didn't appear on tv too much after Simon & Simon, and it makes no sense to me. I did enjoy him very much in the episodes he did on Major Dad and Promised Land. It was soooooo good to see him and McRaney together again...if only for a while.
    I also read "An Accidental Cowboy" and loved it. I look forward to reading more from Mr. Parker.
  • Many of us know Jameson Parker for his role as A.J. Simon, and many of his other guest starring roles, but few know of the talented and published author he is.

    He wrote a book called "An Accidental Cowboy" which recounts his life after Simon & Simon, and how he was shot by a neighbor leaving him in the depths of despair. He takes the reader on a very personal journey of the struggles he endured and how he ran up into cattle country, learning how to become a part time cowboy while coping with his personal demons.
    A memoir, a laugh, a cry, and finally, an understanding of where this man with the unknown story to tell has been!
