Jenny Sullivan (born December 14, 1946) is an American film and television actress. She has starred in some made for TV movies, her best-known role is reporter Kristine Walsh in the 1983 NBC hit miniseries V and its 1984 sequel V: The Final Battle.
Sullivan is the daughter of actor Barry Sullivan. Her first feature film was the The Angry Breed (1968). Other film appearances include Plaza Suite (1971), The Other (1972), The Candidate (1972), Getting Straight (1970), Breakfast in Bed (1978) and Shadow of Doubt (1998).
She has made guest appearances on TV shows, including Little House on the Prairie, Dragnet, Adam-12, The F.B.I., Love, American Style, Dan August, Sanford and Son, Ironside, Falcon Crest, L.A. Law, All in the Family, Hawaii Five-O, The Waltons, and The Fall Guy.
Sullivan wrote the play J for J (Journals for John) which was prompted after she found a packet of unsent letters (in 1995) written by her father decades earlier to her older brother, Johnny, who was mentally disabled. The play premiered on October 20, 2001. John Ritter, who in real life had a handicapped brother, played Johnny, Sullivan played herself, and Jeff Kober portrayed her father Barry.
Sullivan was married to guitarist/producer Jim Messina during the heyday of the country rock duo Loggins and Messina. She is the former sister-in-law of songwriter Jimmy Webb, who was married to her half-sister (and former cover girl) Patricia.
