Personal Quote:

Trivia:

8/02: Quit the series The West Wing (1999). Reports vary as to why, but it seems to have been a combination of salary dispute and screen-time dispute (the character he plays got less focus on the show in more recent episodes). He will appear in the first 16 episodes of the next season, though. See more »
