NOTES

Spencer had originally been cast in "Platoon" (1986) in the role of Sgt. O'Neill but had to withdraw over scheduling conflicts and he was replaced by John C. McGinley.

In 1989, Spencer quit drinking and has remained sober since.

Spencer, along with Alison Janney, Bradley Whitford and Richard Schiff nearly didn't make it back for the start of the third season of "The West Wing" as they staged a one-day walkout while salary negotiations were ongoing.
