Personal Quote:

Television allows for survival, which is the basic issue for me. You have to decide how much money is enough. You can't get carried away with the hunt for money. But there are times it shows up, and you need to grab it, and that allows you to hunt for a better script.


Won the 1988 Helen Hayes Award for his performance in "All My Sons" (Outstanding Supporting Performer, Non-Resident Production). See more »
