John Dehner was a WELCOME guest on The Virginian
27 February 2019 | by budsterfishSee all my reviews

I have heard and read all the critics of Jon Dehners performance and character on the Virginian. I strongly disagree. I think for the short time he was on, he added conflict to the show. When Lee J. Cobb left mid season, something needed to be done. Dehners experience as an actor in so many westerns, playing so many characters made him the perfect choice. As the new leader of Shiloh he gave the Virginian himself some competition, he gave young Randy a little tough Wisdom, and, well, he didn't mess at all with Trampas! Dehner played his role as Starr with confidence. He is a consummate actor and I appreciated these few episodes.
