He was perfect for the role and he played it well.
Agreed. He and Peter Jurasik were particularly brilliant in their roles.
Although I've heard his marriage with Andrea Thompson (Talia Winters) ending and the circumstances around it may have led to some of the some of the cast and plot issues issues with her sudden departure. Not suggesting Doyle was even at fault there... just an interesting behind the scenes footnote that reverberated through the show.
can't speak much for his political leanings
Yeah, he was practically channeling Rush Limbaugh on his show at times. And that I will fully put at Doyle's feet. I would probably despise the guy, but for his portrayal of Garibaldi.
As a human being, I agree, that he seemed to be a genuine and authentic person. RIP Jerry Doyle.
