It's our Tom. Not Tom Cruise [bleurch!] but Tom Skerritt. Even though he made his first film two years before I was a twinkle in my daddy's eyes, I have always had a soft spot for the ruggedly handsome chap!
Viper (dedicated instructor and former Top Gun) in Top Gun
Drum Eatenton (barmy but devoted husband and father) in Steel Magnolias
Jimmy Brock (the Sheriff always an inch or two out of his depth) in Picket Fences
Capt (by the book) Rhodes in Tears of the Sun
...and I see this busy actor has even fitted in a few episodes in the second season of Huff as Huff's pop! Hmm.....Azaria and Skerritt on the same screen - help nurse! (to quote our lovely Lady in the Hills!)
I never really knew my real dad, so you may find some older actors cropping up in my People series....it's a silly thing of mine.
