Personal Quote:

If I was roped into a seven-year TV contract I'd probably hang myself. It's a TV show - selling cars, cereal, soda pop. TV is like that. The shows are incidental to the commercials.

I've never been shocked by anything on television, except the news. See more »

Often cast as the romantic rival who improbably bests the protagonist at almost everything
