Did You Know?
I have this kind of mild nice-guy exterior, but inside my heart is like a steel trap. I'm really quite robotic.
Is a huge fan of the television series Dragnet
(1951) and the series' star Jack Webb
. So much so, that many of his characters are able to rapidly spit out technical information just as Webb did reciting laws and regulations as Sgt. Joe Friday. Some examples of this are: 1. In The Blues Brothers
(1980) when Elwood Blues describes the specifications of the Bluesmobile. 2. In Ghostbusters
Often plays the straight man of a comedy duo
