Is this Justin Tarr? The Philishave Update
A December 1998 commercial from Canada for Philishave razors was sent to us by Barb McDonald, a Tully fan who caught it during a Rat Patrol broadcast on History Television. The spot is quite short and the actor looked like Justin Tarr on the video, but after some investigation we've learned that it's a different actor.

1977 TV series Foley
A fan gave us the scoop on this JT sighting: "AKA why it pays to channel surf at 3 am.... This morning, while surfing, I spotted JT on Hawaii-50 in an episode titled Up the Rebels. There is a great writeup of the episode here. He plays a bad guy named Foley who attempts to blackmail the even badder bad guy (played by Steven Boyd who died three months before this episode was aired) and ends up being blown to bits by the badder bad guy who plants a bomb in a briefcase full of money. The show was the pilot episode of season 10 in 1977. GREAT shots of the man and he still looked GOOD. Longer hair and bangs and I have to admit I wasn't sure it was him even though I thought the pinky ring looked VERY familiar. When he spoke there was no doubt. He is credited only as 'Tar.' Favorite line (by Boyd's character re Foley): 'I like doing business with professionals. They have no ethics, no principles, and no moral standards. So one always knows what to expect from them.'"

The reviewer on the web site linked to above says: "This stunning episode ranks near the top of my pantheon of Hawaii Five-0 greats. Besides a timely and convincing story, what made it so special were stunning performances by Steven Boyd, Elayne Heilveil and Jack Lord. ... As for Jack Lord, his interaction with both of them lifted those scenes to a level of intensity seldom achieved during the run of the show. "
