Personal Quote:

[on appearing on The Dating Game (1965)] I won... What did it? She asked me, if I was a street sign, what would I be? I said, "Slippery when wet." Yes, and as you might have expected, she stood me up. See more »


When Phil Hartman died in 1998, it was necessary to write into the storyline of the television series NewsRadio (1995) that his anchorman character Bill McNeal had died. When that episode was being filmed, the cast and crew had to stop and restart a number of times because they continually broke out in tears. See more »
