Yes, it was Bob Hover who played Lane Wilson.

All those months leading up to the amusement park and what happens--Draper wanders for a second or two and there arrives Logan and April. They should've played out Draper being hunted by Larry Watts around the park for a while.

          I thought that Mark Andrews was a bad actor also. He later appeared on The Doctors - then I saw him in a movie. He seems to have disappeared since that time.
