Personal Quote:

[2011, on Where the Day Takes You (1991)] My first pedophilic role. First of many, with Balthazar Getty. I worked with dear [director] Mark Rocco, who also has passed away now, way too young. And he also cast me later in Murder in the First (1995), another crime of opportunity, because Oliver Stone didn't show up to do a stunt-casting role they had had for him in the movie, "Murder in the First"....

Played two characters with the last name "Ryerson". "Ned Ryerson" in Groundhog Day (1993) (movie) and "Sandy Ryerson" in Glee (2009) (TV). See more »
