Ted's least favorite aspect of playing Joxer on Xena was his goofy, conical helmet. He says, "When you're wearing a clown costume, it's tough to be serious. What I love and hate about the show is that hat. I've always thought it was funny for about two minutes on camera, and then it's not funny anymore. So I would always try and take it off, but the writers think it's so clever and cute that they'd want me in that thing the whole episode. So there was always a fight between me and the costume department. I'd try and take it off and they'd try and keep it on!"
