Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

The show that got us in the business was 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'. Glenn and I closely studied about 75 percent of the scripts on that show. They did wonderful characters that were quirky but understandably human, recognizable, hilarious, perfectly defined and perfectly cast.

Trivia:

Once admitted to the Los Angeles Times that he and his brother Glen rarely give interviews because they consider themselves to be "quite boring". See more »
