Looking for a movie, 70s-80s?, space, ?alien, conspiracy, baby faced coactor

not a lot for you guys to go on but...

I don't remember who the lead was, vaguely remember the movie much at all, but I clearly remember a baby faced character actor in a supporting role with brown hair and a bowl cut. Kind of looked liked a young Dick Van Patten. I don't remember much of it, except little snippets... had to do with space... I think.. and I can't remember if it was real aliens, or a conspiracy about aliens... I think... 70s or early 80s... took place on Earth... baby faced co-lead dies in an explosion in a hangar or warehouse... could even have been made for TV... the character actor was in a lot of other things at the time IIRC.

NOT Capricorn One.

TGM sabotaged my mind! Describing a space movie with someone who looked like Dick Van Patten with a bowl cut put images of Spaceballs in my mind and that I couldn't get out.

Though in my defense, based on that description I wouldn't have been wrong.

You had yours identified in 90 minutes, mine took four years... seems fair.

The hangar fire and surviving in the space ship is what I remember most from this movie. It was on cable a lot at the time.
