Three favorite cities: New York, Kyoto, London
First CD/Tape/LP you owned: Jefferson Starship's "Red Octopus"
First stage kiss: It wasn't on stage. It was next to the stage, with Ann Thompson. I kissed her through a small American flag prop I had in Godspell, which we were rehearsing.

I will never forget that kiss and I still have the flag!!

Worst job you ever had: Installing insulation in houses (very itchy)
Craziest audition story: I auditioned for a director once and after we had spoken for a while we started to read the scene.

He pulled out this camera that had the kind of lens on it that I saw people in Alaska using to take pictures of moose.

He put it right in my face and started taking snapshots... he asked if I minded. Of course I said no. Should have said YES!

What drew you to this project? Peter Dubois
Do you have a favorite moment for your character, or a favorite aspect of playing him? Despite all the terrible things that get said about Don he just keeps going with the flow.
Who have you played on "Law & Order"? Too many!
Any upcoming or side projects you can talk about? "Longmire" and an independent movie I made called "Desert Cathedral"
Career you would want if not a performer: Pumping gas
