Alan Dale: (About his death on The OC) Well, I was pretty disappointed. I think anyone who says they're not, when they're ripped out of a show, is lying, unless they've got some great thing to go to. And at the time, it was really pumping, and it was so exciting to be part of a show that was so different and clever. But I don't know that it's stayed that way, and I don't know what's happened. The ratings seem to have fallen off and it's not as popular as it was, so now, I mean I'm really thrilled that they did that, because here I am, with a brand new show that looks like it's gonna go for awhile.
