Personal Quote:

(on the powers of visualizing your goals) I visualize the roles that I want. If I hadn't visualized playing athletes, I wouldn't have gotten Major League. If I hadn't visualized playing a president, David Palmer never would have happened. You've got to have a sense of what you want to do; otherwise, the universe is just going to throw something at you.

Trivia:

In the photo caption for his San Mateo, California, high school yearbook, he cited having his face on the cover of Ebony and TV Guide as life goals, both of which he later achieved. See more »
