Though Alan Dale became an professional actor at 27, Dale's second wind of his career at age 52 is much more successful than his first. Hot in demand he had several guest appearances on shows such as JAG, The West Wing, and The X-Files.
However, when Dale landed the role of Caleb Nichol on The O.C., Alan got his longest running role on Americna television. On the big screen, most recently Dale has starred in Star Trek Nemesis and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
In season 1 of our favorite show, Dale played publication mogul Bradford Meade.
