Personal Quote:

[on the late Patrick Swayze] He was an expert dancer, he wrote hit songs, he starred in hit movies, he was an amazing horseman. But the thing I will remember him most for was his amazing love affair with his wife, Lisa [Lisa Niemi]. He played my brother twice, in The Outsiders (1983) when I was 17, and then in Youngblood (1986). Tonight, I lost a brother. See more »


His wife, Sheryl Berkoff, is a make-up artist. See more »


Early in his career, he was known for playing unlikeable and ambitious jerks See more »
