Personal Quote:

To me it was like playing Charles Manson. I had nightmares after I finished shooting it. I felt dirty. Bad guys are interesting, even if you don't like them. See more »

Tom's great interest in Civil War history has led him to collect on and research the Civil War era in his personal life as well. See more »
