Even I have a tough time keeping track of the deeds of this oft failed A-/B+ list mostly television actor.
The good news is he sometimes gets put in fairly bad movies too.
You all know him though, and you all love him.
Married, but his celebrity wife does not really share the same level of enthusiasm for helping others as he does.
She is more of a write a check when the Girl Scout manages to find a way through the gate and up to their front door kind of person. Our actor though, he helps.
He helps everyone all of the time.
Those times our actor does land a new show, our actor starts sharing his paycheck with the organizations he supports.
He also immediately gets the craft services people on board to donating all the day’s leftovers to another list of organization he supports.
There is not a day that goes by on set that he is not having people sign scripts or one sheets or anything else he can think of so the organizations can have silent auctions.
One movie he did, our actor managed to obtain signatures on over 1500 items of people much more famous than he.
All those items brought in slightly over $1M.
When his show inevitably gets canceled, our actor switches to volunteer mode.
His goal is always eight hours a day.
Every single day.
He rotates the organizations so each gets him about every ten days.
Back in the day he used to work seven days a week, but now he has cut back to five.
On his longest running show, before he got married and had a family, he would work a a 12 hour day on set and then go volunteer another 5 or 6 hours.
I’m not saying our actor is perfect.
He has had his foibles, but the things he does at home and away from home long canceled out the couple of misdeeds.
