Edward Laurence Albert on "Walker, Texas Ranger" (1996)

Edward Laurence Albert (Mr. Collins, Time Force) guest starred on the long-running Chuck Norris series "Walker, Texas Ranger." Albert appeared in the episode titled "Cyclone," where he played Taylor Griffin, a sinister thug who looks to ransom the town's children, without any intention of returning the children alive. Unfortunately for Taylor, the busload of children he takes hostage is being chaperoned by D.A. Alex Cahill, the girlfriend of Walker himself. This puts Walker and his partner Trivette on the trail of the kidnappers, who have buried the school bus alive, with Alex and the children inside. With time running out and a tornado ripping through Texas, Walker finally locates the bus and gets everyone to safety. Despite being foiled, Taylor believes that his crew will be safe and untraceable. His theory is proved wrong, as Walker and his team bust into their hideout. Taylor flees to the roof amidst a gunfight with Walker. When he runs out of bullets, he dares Walker to kill him. Walker puts away his gun and finishes the fight with his martial arts skill. Edward Laurence Albert is the third PR alum featured for appearing on "Walker, Texas Ranger" after Blake Foster and Brad Hawkins.


Season 5 of "Walker, Texas Ranger" is available on DVD
