Recognized for his tough-guy parts, actor Robert Ginty later ventured into roles as a writer, director, and producer for TV and films. Ginty got his start as an actor on several hit action series, but he first turned entertainment industry heads with his portrayal of First Lieutenant Thomas Joseph "T.J." Wiley, Robert Conrad's misfit protégé, in the World War II series "Black Sheep Squadron" ("Baa Baa Black Sheep"). He went on to costar in the semi-successful show "The Paper Chase," about Harvard Law School students; the hit primetime soap "Falcon Crest"; and "Hawaiian Heat," in which he played a hard-charging Chicago cop who moves to Hawaii to become a detective. Nurturing a film career as well, Ginty nabbed a role opposite David Carradine in the Woody Guthrie biopic "Bound For Glory." He also appeared in the Vietnam vet flick "Coming Home," opposite Bruce Dern, before landing a lead role as a Vietnam vet-turned-vigilante in the unexpectedly popular "The Exterminator" and "Exterminator 2." After Ginty's acting career cooled down, he directed episodes of such hit TV entries as "China Beach" and "Charmed," as well as the Canadian sci-fi effort "Tracker."
