After Manhunter and To Live and Die, there were all these cop movies that came my way, but they weren`t any good, so I didn`t do them. Then there was talk about my doing Platoon, but I didn`t want to sit in a ditch in the Philippines for eight weeks for no money. Instead I did an HBO baseball movie for more money and more fun, and I got to play ball. I enjoy watching great movies like Platoon, but I don`t have to be in them. I never fell in love with movies. I didn`t want to spend all that time an effort. I`ve had it pretty good. I`ve had it my own way.

 

(On his life before his 2nd marriage) When I was younger, women wanted to sleep with me because of whatever movie or play they saw me in, and for about 15 years I certainly took advantage of that more often than not. I got married to my wife, Gina, last summer. I`d been working on the marriage thing with her, trying to get to a place where that was a good thing as opposed to a bad thing. Fidelity was hard when I was younger, but with maturity I got to a mindset of, What`s with all this running around to get girls? Now for me it`s the old case of, Why go out for hamburger when I`ve got steak at home?

 

Attended the renowned Steppenwolf Company.

 

Calls Long Gone (1987) (TV) the most fun he ever had making a movie. He made it instead of appearing in Platoon (1986).
