Anyone else remember the short-lived show "Two Marriages" from the early 80s that he was on with fellow fundie Kirk Cameron? I loved this show, but none of my contemporaries (early 50s) remember it. Saccharine but catchy theme.

Not as far as I'm aware. His record is that of a progressive Democrat. In the video, he says he has "awakened," which is why he's drawing the lightning from the DL MAGA trolls; he's "woke."
[quote]R36: it's kind of easy to read between the lines of his word salad. He voted for Trump.
Nope. He advocated for Trump's removal.
In 2003, he suffered from a ruptured appendix, septicemia set in, and he nearly died. A section of his colon had to be removed. It's that health crisis which prematurely aged him.
And no, R16, he does not look older than Sam Elliot. Have you even seen Elliot recently?

“What makes most magicians bad magicians is their inability to act well, and here I was, a guy that had acting ability, so I thought, “Well, when I watch most magicians, if they were better actors, I’d like them better as magicians.” I personally can’t stand most magicians, because either their act sucks, they’re bad magicians, or they can’t act, so those three qualities made me really hate that art form. But I felt like if I could be trained and learned some skills or even some sort of magic act, then I applied my abilities as an actor to it, I could be a decent magician.”

He says his biggest mistake in life was getting married young, to Rae Dawn Chong. Their marriage only lasted like five months. I think they were together for three years prior to tying the knot. But the marriage totally fast-tracked their breakup.

He was 17 years old in 1983 when the movie was released, and he looks 17.
In fact, C. Thomas Howell was the youngest member of the main cast, born in 1966.
Rob Lowe and Matt Dillon were born in 1964, Tom Cruise and Emilio Estevez were born in 1962, Ralph Macchio in 1961, and Patrick Swayze was the oldest born in 1952.

According to the interview in this article at the link, he's from rural California, his dad was a rodeo cowboy and he was state Jr rodeo champ for three years before he started acting, and he changed his accent and behavior once he started acting in order to fit what he thought other people expected of him. He says that as he became older and more comfortable with who he really is and his background, his accent came back.

And then they get the job and the wife and the kids and they have stress. And so they drink hard all weekend with their "boys." And they age hard. And then you see them at the 20 year reunion and they look like aged parodies of themselves.
