William Dwight Schultz (born November 24, 1947) is an American stage, television, and film actor. He is best known for his roles as Captain "Howling Mad" Murdock on the 1980s action show The A-Team, and as Reginald Barclay in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, and the film Star Trek: First Contact.[1] He is also well known in Animation as the Mad Scientist Dr. Animo in the Ben 10 series, Chef Mung Daal in the children's cartoon Chowder, and Eddie the Squirrel in CatDog.

Early life

Schultz was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a graduate of Calvert Hall College High School and an alumnus of Towson University, both located in Towson, Maryland.

Career

Schultz' breakthrough role was the mentally unstable Captain "Howling Mad" Murdock on The A-Team. At the series outset, the producers felt that his character would be too over-the-top for viewers and planned to drop him after his debut, but early test screenings showed that he was popular with the audience. As a result, he was effectively "written back in" to the series.

Schultz has also appeared in films including The Fan (1981), as Broadway Actress Lauren Bacall's director, and Fat Man and Little Boy (1989), as J. Robert Oppenheimer.

He auditioned for the part of Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the television show St. Elsewhere, but lost out to Howie Mandel when producer Bruce Paltrow learned Schultz was a fan of President Ronald Reagan.[2]

In the early 1990s, he had a recurring role as Lieutenant Reginald Barclay in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Schultz reprised the role for Star Trek: Voyager and the film Star Trek: First Contact.

Schultz is also known for his voice talent. His voice credits include numerous popular video games and cartoons.

He also is the host of a conservative talk radio podcast called Howling Mad Radio, which took a short hiatus until March 2009.[3] Schultz has also guest hosted for Michael Savage on "The Savage Nation" and Rusty Humphries on "The Rusty Humphries Show" on numerous occasions.[4]

In November 2009, he confirmed that he (and former A-Team co-star, Dirk Benedict) would have a cameo in the feature film The A-Team,[4] however, both Schultz's and Benedict's parts were ultimately cut from the film proper, but placed after the credits of the theatrical showing as an easter egg. In the cameo appearance, Schultz was supposed to play the role of a psychiatrist monitoring an electro-shock therapy session with the "new" Murdock.

Personal life

Schultz married former actress Wendy Fulton (Bare Essence) in 1983[5] and has a daughter.
