Personal Quote:

When I read the pilot [for Married with Children (1987)], it just reminded me of my Uncle Joe... just a self-deprecating kind of guy. He'd come home from work, and the wife would maybe say, "I ran over the dog this morning in the driveway." And he would say "Fine, what's for dinner?".

Trivia:

Learned (and still practices) Brazilian Ju-Jitsu from the famous Gracie family. See more »
