Personal Quote:

[About Bob Newhart wanting him for a co-starring role Newhart (1982)]: So, Barry Kemp [I think] introduces me, and we have an actor who's in 'Bosom Buddies,' and Bob leans in, so that everyone can hear in a mock whisper, stage whisper, and he says, 'I told you to get the other guy!' See more »

Trivia:

His acting mentor was Bob Newhart. See more »
