Graduated from the University of Missouri, where he majored in journalism.
He claims that he had a few very bad years, from 1979 to 1981. The roles stopped coming, and he says, "I was just scraping by financially, and emotionally I was getting really defeated. I got to the point where I could hardly go on auditions anymore.".
Even my agents say, `We don`t know what this business is anymore.` These days, you can do a TV series for five years and all of a sudden be on top of the business. Features don`t even run in theaters very long anymore before going right to television. And every other movie is one of those action things. I mean, Lost in Space?--a bunch of good actors running around shooting at special effects on a soundstage? I took my kids to see that and almost felt like I was on an acid trip. Most of what gets made now, you laugh your way through, go home and forget you`ve seen it.
(On being famous) "I mean I`ve turned down magazine covers because, for one thing, I don`t know if I want people sending them to me for autographs or whatever, and I don`t like the idea of seeing myself on magazine racks. Another thing is I do like my privacy and I get very little of that as it is. I like to do what I want when I want, and I want to be able to walk down the street without an entourage or protection. It`s bad enough for me already."
