As the put-upon writer Murray Slaughter, Gavin MacLeod had to tolerate Ted Baxter butchering his scripts since his own balding pate and excessive sweating kept him from the anchor chair. He finally got to be captain of the ship when he set sail on "The Love Boat" in 1977.
Since then, the 82-year-old actor has guest starred on such shows as "JAG" and "Oz." Along with his second wife, Patti Kendig, whom he divorced and remarried, he became a born-again Christian and hosted a Trinity Broadcasting Network show on marriage.
