Personal Quote:

I'm still a Texan although I live here in L.A. If you're born and raised there you can't get the state out of your system. It's pretty much home.


While preparing for the role of A.J. Chegwidden in JAG (1995), he interviewed several senior naval officers to get a better idea of how to play an admiral. Reportedly, the common response was "An admiral acts any damn way he wants to!". See more »
