Son, Andrew (b. 1981), with Connie Cole.
Had both legs amputated after suffering burns over 65% of his body, the result of his car being crushed by an 18-wheeler in 1978. He uses prosthetics.
Met third wife Judy Stearns through the music business, a year after his accident. They married about 20 years later.
Bearded character actor who since his accident in 1978 has done extensive radio and voiceover work.
His disabled-specific role as the coroner on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000) was initially for one episode, but expanded immediately to a regular role in 2000. Since this monumental success, he has become an impassioned spokesperson on the importance of hiring actors with disabilities. He has testified before Congress and served as a national board member and chair on the Performers With Disabilities Committee.
Is an accomplished singer, guitar player, and pianist.
If you support diversity and think shows should give a portrayal of what America truly looks like, then performers with disabilities must be included in that equation...People have been very good at being politically correct. They say the right things. But there has been an assumption that disabled actors could slow down production, can't do this or that, or that people won't want to see them on screen.
