Personal Quote:

"I was told directors wouldn't hire me. They'd think I'd go crazy on the set. What's more important - directors or producers who might not cast me becuase they're ignorant, or helping people? So that's what I've been doing." - speaking publicly about his bipolar disorder.


Has three daughters with wife Paula: Cailey Sophia (b. 18 September 1994), Cassidy Rose (b. 8 April 1999), and Heather, who was adopted in 2008. See more »
