“I think with that, he like many others don’t go in that direction if you are in show business.”
Huh? That makes little sense. Most people in show business tend towards a progressive direction. While I realize it is a mistake to think the ethos of a show and the part one portrays as a role, you would think that the progressive ethos of the entire Star Trek universe, one considered groundbreaking on such things as breaking down racial barriers, etc. might have rubbed off on him.
