Personal Quote:

I really thought it was a joke. I went back to my hotel room and took a bath and they called and wanted to make a deal. I still didn't believe it. See more »

Played Missy Crider's father in the miniseries The Beast (1996). Crider later appeared in the second-season premiere of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000). See more »
