Personal Quotes (2)

[about his 'Wiseguy' character] 15 years later, people still say to me, "How's it going, buckwheat?"
[on playing bad guy roles] In L.A., when you start out you work in TV and on TV there's the good guy who's usually someone like Don Johnson and then there's the bad guy. On a series all year there is only one good guy, but every week there's a different bad guy. If you can't play a bad guy, you won't work very much.
