Trivia (8)

Had a son Ben and a daughter Daisy.
Bears an uncanny resemblance to Colonel Oliver North's lawyer during the Iran-Contra hearings. So much so, he and the ALF puppet did a short made-for-TV spoof of the Senate Commitee hearings, in which ALF was being questioned on whether or not he was an alien, and he would lean over to hear the whispered advice from Willie (played by Wright), just like Oliver North was doing during his own questioning.
In September of 2003, he lost his driving privileges in New York state for 6 months, following a guilty plea to a drunken-driving charge after running into some mailboxes and a traffic sign. On January 10, 2000, he was arrested and booked for drunk driving following a non-injury accident in Hollywood, California.
Was nominated for Broadway's 1998 Tony Award as Best Actor (Featured Role - Play) for "Ivanov."
Was diagnosed with lymphoma in 1995 and has been in remission ever since.
Lived in Hermosa Beach, California.
He's currently playing a shepherd in "The Winter's Tale", a "Shakespeare in the Park" production in New York City's Central Park. [July 2010]
Has stated in interviews that he hated working on the set of ALF (1986) and was happy when it ended in 1990.
