Trivia

Member of American Mensa, and listed on the organizations website as a "Famous Member" along with Geena Davis.

Balding American character actor known for his unsympathetic work on TV as vain, callous attorney/partner Douglas Brackman in "L.A. Law" (1986-1994) and as Dharm's radical father in "Dharma & Greg" (1997-2002).

In the late 70s/early 80s during a career lull, he left acting for a time to focus on writing for such TV shows as "Knight Rider," "Hill Street Blues," "Hart to Hart" and "Quincy."

One of the original performers of the half play, half musical, fully nude off-Broadway hit "Oh! Calcutta" back in 1969.

The balding actor once hosted an episode of PBS' "Nova," that was entitled "Sex, Lies and Toupee Tape," which was an informative and humorous look at pattern baldness and its effect on both men and women.
