NCIS might be one of the most popular shows right now, but JAG was here first. Let’s not forget its series finale, which is up to par to that of The Sopranos. In the end, a coin toss decided if Harm or Mac would sacrifice their career for each other. If you miss the excellent CBS show, this is the article for you! Let’s take a look at how our favorite stars from the show are doing.
David James Elliot
We cannot think of any way to kick off the list than by checking in on Captain Harmon “Harm” Rabb, Jr. What did actor David James Elliot get up to after JAG? You might be glad to hear that his career continued to be successful. He worked on the Canadian TV film The Man Who Lost Himself together with his wife and costar Nanci Chambers. More on that later! He also starred in The Guard, CSI, and Close to Home. In Trumbo, he played John Wayne. If you watched Mad Men, he also appeared in two episodes of the show.

While his face might not have popped up on your screens, he actually provided the voice for cartoon shows like Spider-Man: The Animated Series. Together with his television producer wife Tina Albanese, he created and produced the Nick at Nite show See Dad as well. He got to reprise the role of Captain Bud when he appeared twice in the JAG spin-off show, NCIS.
John M. Jackson
John M. Jackson brought Rear Admiral or A.J. on JAG. It was a good thing that we got to see more of him in the same role in NCIS: Los Angeles. Maybe you also saw him in the film Gifted, where he starred alongside stars Chris Evans and Jenny Slate.
Did you know that Karri Turner, who portrayed Lt. Harriet Sims, happens to be a traveling comedian? We know how cool that sounds. Together with Michael McDonald and Kathy Griffin, the actress did comedy acts for American soldiers. By 2012, she already completed 13 USO tours! Yes, she has worked with the Nation Guard Young Challenge program and the American Freedom Foundation in the past. When it comes to her acting career, you might have seen in her the TV show Heroes and the movie Hurricane in the Rose Garden before.
Do you remember the handsome Petty Officer First Class Jason Tiner from JAG?

The actor Chuck Carrington later appeared in the horror flick called The List and the TV show called Shameless.
Actor Scott Lawrence established himself in the industry when he started to play Commander Sturgis. Perhaps you remember him as Maurice of The Social Network or the crew chief in Avatar.

When Steven Culp was done playing Mr. Clayton Web on the show, he did not disappear from the limelight. He has guest starred in projects such as The West Wing, 24, and NCIS. However, his big break came in the form of the character Rex Van de Kamp of Desperate Housewives. Unfortunately, tragedy befell him and his clan when his half-sister and her family got murdered in January 2006. It was a good thing they caught the preps a month later.
It was only a matter of time before we talked about Nanci Chambers. The actress played none other than Lt. Loren Singer in JAG. She dated David James Elliott, and they got hitched in 1992. She has also worked on projects like Save Our Souls and The Stranger I Married in the past.
