Personal Quote:

I've lost track of the number of times I've been supersonic. If you are ruling out drug use, I guess that's something not many other actors can say.


An avid fisherman, Len was poised to become a marine biologist while acting at the community theatre. The release of "Top Gun" changed that plan. Len joined the Marines, attended flight school, and flew F/A-18s with combat tours from the deck of an aircraft carrier. He eventually did fulfill his dream and attended the Top Gun school in January 2000. See more »
