Personal Quote:

[on his good friend and My Cousin Vinny (1992) co-star, the late Fred Gwynne] It takes somebody who's very serious to pull off a character like Herman Munster [from Gwynne's series The Munsters (1964)]. It's not simple to play the goof. Fred was not Herman. He was an intelligent, quiet gentleman.


Is a producer of the multi-Tony-winning stage musical 'Jersey Boys", about the formation of the famous "Four Seasons" group, and his real-life role in the formation of the group was portrayed in the original Broadway production of the show by Michael Longoria. See more »
