In 1990, he produced and co-starred in A Prayer for My Daughter, which won that year's Los Angeles DramaLogue Award for Best Ensemble Production.
A multitude of primetime television opportunities also followed. He starred as Alexi Theodopoulos in the series, Bare Essence, and appeared in such made-for-television movies and miniseries as The Great Escape, Lucky, and Lady Mobster, which co-starred his All My Children castmate, Susan Lucci.
