John: How did you come into playing Steel, was it an audition, or did you recieve a call??

Gary: That's very good story, and a lot of people may not know it. Initially my agent sent me to meet George, it was an audition process,in New york City, and I went in to meet George and his wife Christine was know in a the casting office in NY city, and the interesting thing is.....they had me read for Rhodes.

John: How did you develop the character Steele??

Gary: Well, let me tell you a quick story. There was this guy from one of the big papers, he was like a theater critic or film critic. It might have been the Pittsburgh Post Gazette,thats one of the big papers...He says to me,while we were talking during a few minutes between scenes: "How do yu work on Steele?", and I told him, "You have to find something in the character you love.".
