He was a talented pitcher at Dartmouth College, and drafted by the Boston Red Sox out of school, but after getting cut by the team, he decided to pursue acting.
In the few lead roles he did get - as Dr. Andy Fenton in the 1983 series, Cutter to Houston, and Dan Braden on The Best Times - the shows did not last past the first season.
He was born to family in Oneonta, New York.
He had a small part in the 1997 noir classic, L.A. Confidential, which starred Kevin Spacey.
