I've made a career over the last seventeen years of mostly playing men in uniform, especially cops. The one thing for an actor that is death, is if you're bored. The boredom will show in your work.
I'm oftentimes called away from my family... it's rather hard for me to be away from them. We're very close.
I come from a large family so you can count on the fact that I'm going to have more kids.
