Jim J. Bullock (born February 9, 1955) is an American comedian, stage, television and film actor. In 1985, while Too Close For Comfort was being retooled as The Ted Knight Show, Bullock learned that he was HIV positive. The sole bright spot during this period was his partner, John Casey, whom he met in 1990. In 1996 John Casey, died from AIDS-related complications. Bullock is a longtime survivor of the virus and, as of 2011, was still healthy due in part to antiretroviral drugs.
