Personal Quote:

[on why he left Hey Dad..! (1987)] I was feeling stuck in the series - the same routine over and over and over again. 'Hey Dad..!' had been very good to me and it helped raise my profile as an actor. But it was time to move on. I was feeling really stale and it can be debilitating for an actor to be so closely identified with one character. I thought I had to make the break. See more »


Despite being the star performer for 12 seasons of Hey Dad..! (1987), he has not participated in any "Hey Dad..!" cast reunions. See more »
