Personal Quote:

He didn't want me at first, told me about the big-name actor he could get, how he was taller than I was - I'm five eight and a half - but I said, "That's nothing, I can stand on a box.". See more »


He turned down the role of Admiral Geoffrey Tolwyn in Wing Commander (1999) due to his commitment to Fantasy Island (1998). The role went to David Warner. He previously played the role in Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger (1994). See more »
