Personal Quote:

[observation, 2013] What's going on in television reminds me of what was going on in movies in the '70s, where the inmates had kind of taken over the asylum. And they're doing a lot of interesting things that I myself want to watch.. The studios are just giving more of their tent-pole remakes of, you know, what's been successful before. I really don't find it all that interesting. See more »

Trivia:

Lived with and was engaged to Lea Thompson for three years. The couple met on the set of Jaws 3-D (1983). See more »
