Last Question: On My Two Dads, who played the two dads?
Answer: Paul Reiser and Greg Evigan
My Two Dads aired on NBC from 1987-1990. Here is the show synopsis from Wikipedia:
The show begins when Marcy Bradford (Emma Samms), the mother of Nicole Bradford (Staci Keanan), dies. The two men who had competed for the woman’s affections before Nicole was born — Michael Taylor (Paul Reiser) and Joey Harris (Greg Evigan) — are awarded joint custody of Nicole. The mix-ups of two single men raising a teenage daughter provided the story each week. Judge Margaret W. Wilbur (Florence Stanley), a family court judge, would frequently visit the new family and served as Nicole’s mentor.
Nicole’s actual paternity was never revealed on the show. However, in the episode “Pop, the Question”, Michael and Joey — after they had a falling out — had a DNA test run to determine which of them was Nicole’s biological father. However, the test was conducted against Nicole’s wishes, so she destroyed the results before opening them since she was happier not knowing who the father was. Michael and Joey later resolve their differences and reconcile. Judge Wilbur looks at the results, but throws them away without revealing them to the audience.
Paul Reiser previously played a goofy detective in the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, and was in Aliens. After My Two Dads, Reiser had the role he is most known for – Paul Buchman on Mad About You. He tried to make a comeback to television in April this year with a new show – The Paul Reiser Show. Unfortunately for him, the show only lasted 2 episodes before it was cancelled.
In addition to My Two Dads, Greg Evigan was best known as as Billie Joe ‘BJ’ McKay from the television show B.J. and the Bear (1979-1981). He has not had any major roles since My Two Dads, but has appeared in guest spots on many television shows and movies over the years.
