Welcome to Dirk Benedict Central – the only OFFICIAL website for news and information about Dirk Benedict.  Learn where and when he will next appear, any upcoming projects, etc.

We also talk about his many roles (including Starbuck and the Faceman), about Macrobiotics – basically all things Dirk Benedict, and more; we are a community of friends, people who initially came together to celebrate Dirk, his career, and his books, but who discovered that we have much more in common.

So if you’d like to join us on our members-only forum (Dirk’s Works), or just want to see what’s coming up for Dirk, take a look back at his previous work, or any combination thereof, we bid you a warm welcome and hope you enjoy, and come back often!

If you are an event promoter and would like to invite Dirk Benedict to appear at your event, please email me at “webmaster at dirkbenedictcentral dot com” (I spell it out like that to confuse the spambots…), and I will forward your request along.

John Pickard, Webmaster

“There is a divine moment in our lives when we become One. It is called pro-creation and it is reborn continually and forever in the future we call children.
They are our destiny and we are theirs. The extent to which we fail as parents… we fail as God’s Children.”

Dirk Benedict
Actor, Author, Director, Woodchopper, Dad


A few items we need you to know:

**7/13/2021: Woo-hoo! We can not only confirm that Dirk is scheduled to appear at the Fanboy Expo in Columbus in November, we’ve got a new appearance in Wichita, KS in September, too. And he’ll be in San Jose in August… Still no word, though, on the Wales appearance – but we want it to happen so I’m leaving it on the list… Check out the Upcoming Appearances page for details.


**6/7/2021: Pensacon was a huge success, as far as we’re concerned; it was a great time for everyone, and our thanks to the folks who ran that show!

We are so happy that with the easing of Covid restrictions the plans for in-person conventions and events are once again in full swing, and those events that had to be postponed in 2020 and 2021 are back on the calendar. Both the Fanboy Expo in Columbus, Ohio, and the Wales Comic Con in the UK have been rescheduled into November (see the “Upcoming Appearances” page), and right now we’re confirming with the event organizers that the dates will work on Dirk’s calendar as well; that’s why I say “appearance tentative” on those… I will confirm with you, one way or the other, as soon as I hear back.


**Even the best of intentions will go awry…

Thanks to the hundreds – perhaps thousands – maybe millions – of spambots, unscrupulous advertisers, malware producers, sex-trade purveyors, and other evil, compassionless, troll-like dregs of humanity, our “Contact Us” function has inundated me with a growing daily number of unwanted spam messages, which is overwhelming the legitimate contacts we get through that function.

I have, therefore, turned it off until such time as I can find a system that is less vulnerable to such hijacking.

I have a stack of messages to go through, so please bear with me. In the meantime…

!! We presently do not have a mechanism to provide autographed photos upon request. Such things are in future plans, but are not realizable at the moment. Please don’t expect a response to such requests – yet.

!! I genuinely enjoy passing along to Dirk how much his fans love and appreciate him, but under the circumstances if you don’t mind holding those expressions for the moment, I will be grateful.

!! If you are organizing an event you would like Dirk to attend as a guest, please email me at webmaster @ this domain with your details, and I’ll get it into the right hands.

I do appreciate your understanding, and hope you enjoy looking through our site.
