Personal Quote:

[When asked in an interview whether the widespread rumor that he is John Wayne's grandson is true] Oh, God! That is just a rumor, but I would have no shame in perpetuating it. I'll be John Wayne's grandson! You know, his real name was Marion Morrison -- and if you look at pictures of him and me, it's quite uncanny. See more »
