Personal Quote:

[on his show "Houston Knights"] Look, we've had cop shows since the inception of television, and when there's two guys they're usually buddies. The switch here is Michael and I don't get along - he's from Chicago, and we're not crazy about each other, we're more likely to slug each other - but we're accessible enough to get into America's living rooms every week.

Trivia:

Born two days after Brent Spiner, in the same month of the same year. See more »
