    • Gregory: Surfing keeps my drive and my idealism alive.

    • (On Catalina Production Group Ltd.)
      Gregory: When my business partner Frank Levi died in 1992, I moved out of LA to Oregon in order to raise my kids there, and I let the company go.

    • Gregory: If you do TV and film all the time, you just feel like you are shrinking. With each performance you are getting tighter, and smaller, and more compact; working for the close-ups only. And I think that shrinks you talent-wise after a while.

  • I loved him in Reunion and Joey!

    He did a GREAT job playing Dean in the TV show, Joey. He was totally hilarious and he also did a great job as Russell in Reunion. At the age of 57, he doesn't appear to be slowing down. He plays a variety of characters and he really takes the role and makes it his own. Furthermore, he very talented. Not only is he an actor, but he is also a singer, director and producer! This Californian native has been singing all his life. The cool thing is that he can do many accents. For example, he can do a British accent and a Southern accent. I hope to see him again in the small/big screen soon!moreless
