Find out where all your favorite stars went after those 10 amazing seasons. It’s been quite some time since the show got cancelled in 2005…what has everyone from Catherine Bell to David James Elliot been up to?
David James Elliot
Of course, we have to start with Captain Harmon, who you know best as Harm. This JAG star was played by the one and only David James Elliot who went on to star with on shows like The Guard and Close to Home.

Naturally, he reprised the role of Bud for two episodes of NCIS.
John M. Jackson
