Personal Quote:

[When he auditioned for Leave It to Beaver (1957) at age 8]: All the original Leave It to Beavers were from real-life, so that things that really did happen to boys, say, in the 1920s, '30s, that really happened in the '50s can go on forever. See more »


Served in the military after he grew up. Was mistakenly reported as killed in the Vietnam War when a similarly-named soldier was reported dead. See more »
