After the death of his father when he was young, he left school and went to stay and support his mother and family. In his teens, he served the U.S marine for 3 years and after returning back; worked as a theatre artist. Towards the early 70s, he graduated from Williams College and later from The National Theater Institute at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. After graduating, he quickly started to work as an actor and soon settled in Hollywood, when he started to get work one after other.

A man with good looks and charms, he used to be very attractive as a young man with his white skin and boyish charm. Although he is of an average built and has a height of 5 feet and 7 inches, he has got a blonde hair and has been balding because of his growing age. Currently at the age of 68; he has still got what it needs to look as a celebrity and despite his huge popularity has been able to stay calm and humble. With his fans and followers searching for his shirtless pictures in the media, it looks like there are none such photos in the media or his Instagram. To find out more about his life or career, you can read his biography in sites like IMDB or Wikipedia and also stay connected in his social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Having given a variety of roles in his professional life, it looks like his love life is not so diverse after all. With so much fame and wealth, it must have been difficult for him to not have many girlfriends, but to stay committed in a single relationship. Although, the lack of information about his affairs had also raised rumors regarding his sexuality, but that news was all false and he is not a gay. In fact, he has been married once to his wife Deborah Taylor, who is also an actress. The couple got married in 1986 and stayed together for 13 years before getting divorced in 1999. They had a son together, named William Clapp who is doing well, as of now.
