Trivia:

Although he was typecast as being straitlaced and businesslike, he was notorious for his wicked sense of humor and pulling pranks on his co-stars. While filming The Bold Ones: The New Doctors (1969), he often ad-libbed profane jokes and non-sequiturs while his lips were hidden by a surgical mask. See more »
