Personal Quote:

When I read the pilot [for Married with Children (1986)], 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:

O'Neill was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1969 as an outside linebacker. He was released before the start of the 1969 regular season. See more »

Trademark:
