Evigan was born in South Amboy, New Jersey, the son of Barbara Elizabeth, a homemaker, and Ralph Milan Evigan, an electrician. He grew up in Sayreville, New Jersey, and attended Sayreville War Memorial High School, graduating in 1971, and was inducted in the 2007 Sayreville War Memorial High School Alumni Hall of Fame for his contributions to the arts. Evigan is married to dancer Pamela C. Serpe and has three children. His youngest daughter, Briana Evigan, is the lead actress in the 2008 movie Step Up 2: The Streets. Another daughter is actress Vanessa Lee Evigan. Evigan's son Jason is the front man of a popular LA-based band called After Midnight Project and wrote the song "Perfect Day" for Legally Blonde's soundtrack.

 career
Evigan was a teen idol during the late 1970s and early 1980s. He auditioned for and landed roles in Jesus Christ Superstar and Grease .

Evigan is best known for his work in three hit television series:

  • 1979's B.J. and the Bear, where he starred as B.J. McKay, a truck driver whose best friend was a chimpanzee named Bear;
  • 1987's My Two Dads in which a teenage girl is raised by two past boyfriends of her deceased mother together when it cannot be determined which is the father ; and
  • mid-1990s TekWar, a sci-fit hit based on a series of books by Star Trek elder statesman William Shatner (who also co-starred). TekWar originated as a series of two-hour television movies in 1994, and then became a series of hour-long episodes that ran in 1995-96.

However, Evigan appeared in other productions as well.

It was with B.J. and the Bear that Evigan reached pop-star status, and he began receiving cover from such magazines as Tiger Beat, Teen Beat and many other magazines geared towards teenaged girls. In 1980 he posed bare-chested for a pin-up wall poster.

Evigan was played by the actor Mark Gatiss in several When Insects Attack segments in 1998 and When Things Get Knocked Over segments in 1999 episodes of the television sketch show This Morning with Richard Not Judy.
