#Quote
1"I like playing a good guy. I will say that Jake from Melrose Place (1992) is a little too nice, but in a show that's painted with very broad strokes, if you're going to be good, you're going to be very good, and if you're bad, you're going to be very, very bad. So if I had to make a choice, I'd opt for the good guy." (Answer to question of fan on 'Progidy Online Service' Nov/1994)
