I know Danny and have for years...still see him around and have heard him speak a few times. He's a good guy...and yea, 'it' all came upon him by accident as he went to the set of Runaway Train to help a suffering alcoholic and it all started there. They got him to train Eric Roberts on how to box and he had a small scene boxing in the movie. From there just his look and presence and demeanor and Danny's personality and he started making B movies. Still best role and best acting to me has always been in the DeNiro/Pacino film, Heat. He had a great death scene laying on the floor on his back and can't feel anything. Good job. Since then he makes movies that aren't my cup of say the least. He looks the way he looks, but he's a softy at heart and everyone likes Danny.

Thanks for this insightful bits about him. Yeah, it looked to me that he's an ok guy, so thanks for that. Of course, I don't watch many of his movies, but I think he's doing just fine. As I said, I'm glad he's got the chance to do good ...

Me too and he does do a lot of good for a lot of alcoholics and has for many years.
