around the webIt’s a death-defying life I lead, I’ll take my chances. I’ve died for a living in the movies and TV. But the hardest thing I’ll ever do is watch my leading ladies, kiss some other guy while I’m bandaging my knee. I might fall from a tall building, I might roll a brand-new car, ‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that made Redford such a star.
