Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1983)
Character Name: Hoops
There was singing and dancing in this updated revival of the hit 1954 MGM movie classic. While the movie was set on the frontier, this series took place in contemporary times, as the parentless family of boys tried to go it alone on a ranch in northern California.
Brett guestarred in the episode “Winner.” Adam McFadden (Richard Dean Anderson), a star of the 1972 Murphys High School basketball team, expects to have a good time reliving that championship season at his class’s tenth reunion. But six head of cattle stolen from the McFadden Ranch, followed by a murder, draw Adam away from the reunion. As he, Brian (Drake Hogestyn) and Crane (Peter Horton) arm themselves to lead the search for the rustlers, Adam can’t help but wonder at the coincidence that his old friend Mike (Brian Kerwin) has just returned to Murphys after an absence of years to start up a cattle ranch.
Guest Starring: Brian Kerwin as Mike, Brett Cullen as Hoops, Gary Grubbs as Bert, Taylor Lacher as Deputy Sykes, Morgan Paul as Carl, Pamela Newman as Jackie, and Stephen Lee as Jimmy.
