Personal Quote:

[on director Walter Hill] I think Walter is a writer at heart. Writers aren't always that good at communicating in person. He's also a tough son-of-a-bitch. He's like a cowboy. His director's chair was made out of leather and on the back of it read "Lone Wolf". He used to frequent gun clubs and he wasn't a very delicate guy. I can remember on Streets of Fire, we were doing some ADR for the film. ... See more »


When he is not working on films, he lives full time in Los Angeles, California with his wife Marjolein, a former fashion model. See more »
