The majority of Jeff Yagher's work has come on television, where he played heartthrobs before evolving into more of a character actor. After spending a year at the Yale School of Drama, he made his television debut as Kyle Bates in "V," a spinoff of the hit '80s sci-fi miniseries. Over the course of the show's run, he evolved from the aimless, resentful son of a scientific industrialist into a competent soldier fighting against alien invaders, and Yagher likely would have hit similarly heroic notes in his next series, "21 Jump Street," had fate not intervened. Indeed, while he was initially cast as the show's lead protagonist, undercover cop Tom Hanson, the part was recast with Johnny Depp before the pilot aired. During this time, Yagher was among the promising young ensemble of actors in "Shag: The Movie," a 1989 comedy about teenage women coming of age; he also guest-starred on episodes of various sitcoms, horror anthologies, and dramas. After co-starring in the short-lived comedy "Room for Two" during the early '90s, he continued to do television work and the occasional film, though he also branched out into special-effects work with his brother Kevin. During the '04-'05 season of the hit HBO series "Six Feet Under," he landed the role of Hoyt Woodworth, a character with a much-troubled emotional arc.
