For lack of a better term, they`ve labeled me a sex symbol. It`s flattering and it should happen to every bald, overweight guy.
I was so emotional. Choked up. I could hardly talk all day. I`ll be cleaning out my trailer and saying goodbye soon, realizing what a wonderful experience this has been.
I`ll miss the comments from the people on the street who love the show and who have felt its impact on the culture. I won`t miss the shooting schedule, though!
I`ll miss the relationships I have built with these actors. I`ll miss the devotion we have to this work. Over this length of time, the tendency is to think it will never end.
Changes have taken place since year one. When Caruso left, that was a big change. We`ve been able to adapt nicely. It`s given us new opportunities for different characters and story lines.

One of the things I had a hard time getting used to when I came to California in `78 was Santa Claus in shorts.

For lack of a better term, they`ve labeled me a sex symbol. It`s flattering. It should happen to every bald, overweight guy.
In a perfect world, you would be able to hold onto everyone. But It`s not realistic. The changes with NYPD have been progressive and have taken the show to new levels.
I consider myself fortunate that I`ve been able to find a character that people have responded to.
Everyone needs to be proactive and know the various warning signs of cancer. Early detection and research to make detection easier at earlier stages, along with the treatments needs, is still a must. I salute all those winning the battle.
