OK, scrap my original answer; due to another 11th hour find, here are the correct answers:

1. Who was the lieutenant general? Lieutenant General Jubal Early. The bounty hunter character named "Jubal Early" appeared in the 14th and final episode ( "Objects in Space" ; aired in 2002) of the science fiction TV series, "Firefly". The part was played by actor Richard Brooks.

2. Who was the actor to whom he was reportedly related ? Nathan Fillion. Fillion claimed to be a descendant of Jubal Early; however, genealogical research has shown that Nathan and Lieu. Gen. Early are not related; Nathan's line leads back to ancestors named "Ehrle" or "Oehrle" in Germany, while the Lieu. Gen.'s line leads back to Donegal, Ireland.

The show was Firefly, and the lieutenant general and the bounty hunter were both named Jubal Early. The actor who inspired the character name was Nathan Fillion, who would later go on to play "Castle." However, genealogists have since determined that Nathan Fillion and Jubal Early were NOT actually related.
