Personal Quote:

[on becoming a producer on Battlestar Galactica (1978)] It all boils down to who actually does the work, because the titles don't really mean a thing, other than that you can drive your car on the lot, because the producers can drive and everybody else has to have a Teamster. See more »

Trivia:

The alternate, European pronunciation of his last name is, "Yik-struh". See more »

Gemini
