Where Are They Now?
The Men, Women And That Sexy Car of Knight Rider—Where Are They Now?
What do you get when you combine a well-meaning billionaire, an ex-cop, a sexy female mechanic and a talking indestructible car? Knight Rider, which ran from 1982 to 1986, was the American TV version of “007” that people could catch each week on their televisions, and much better (and faster) than waiting for a Bond thriller to come out. Quick plot summary: the ailing billionaire, Wilton Knight saves Michael Long from a near-fatal gunshot wound and gives him a new name along with a set of new fingerprints—and voila, Michael Knight was born. Criminals were left shaking in their boots, because the new representative of Knight Industries also had a talented team behind him (not to mention the ever so invulnerable car, K.I.T.T.). We take a look at where the stars of this classic TV show are today --30 years later! By Brittany Carson

Outside of Knight Rider, Daniels is well known for his other authoritative (and bossy?) figures such as Dustin Hoffman’s father in the cult movie The Graduate, as Dr. Mark Craig in St. Elsewhere, and Principle George Feeny in Boy Meets World. More recently, you can catch him playing yet another Craig doctor, Dr. Craig Thomas in Gray’s Anatomy.
