>• The JAG alum, 49, goes behind bars to play a convicted grifter on the new ABC drama.
AFTER YOUR CLEAN-CUT JAG PERSONA, DO YOU LIKE PLAYING A THIEF?
This is closer to my real character than any role I’ve ever played. I have always been a rogue, a scoundrel.
EVER GET LOCKED UP?
I’ve never been to jail—but I do have a checkered past, ha! And karmically, being on a show for 10 years was a little bit like jail … the closest I’ll get.
HOW DO YOU TEACH YOUR KIDS—STEPHANIE, 17, AND WYATT, 7—RIGHT FROM WRONG?
Your children need to feel that if they tell you something a little dodgy, you’re not going to flip out—like my parents used to. We’ve always made it easy for our kids: For every action there is a reaction, so be responsible for every part of your life.
ANY SUMMER VACATION PLANS?
My son was none too happy when I was leaving for New Mexico to shoot [Scoundrels]. So I promised I’d take him on a Disney Cruise.
