Fun Fact:        While working in Manhattan—wearing a business suit, a black leather trench coat, and face full of disdain—I unknowingly walked into a live shot of TV show “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” with actor William Donahue. When I realized what I had just done, I noticed that the director never stopped rolling the cameras. Playing the role of a lifetime—an aloof, stressed out New Yorker—I walked right back into the scene and circled behind the stars to make sure that I got a second appearance on NBC’s Must-See TV show. (I soon put my acting career on the back-burner, and concentrated on more serious pursuits.)
