There are a few things Neal McDonough refuses to do in Hollywood.
“I won’t mention the Lord’s name in vain, and then I won’t kiss another woman,” the 53-year-old told Fox News. “Sex scenes aren’t in it for me. And I think, gosh, there’s enough sex scenes out there and me being in my fifties I’m not sure if anyone wants to see me doing that stuff anyway, but it’s a comfort level.”
“I’m not very comfortable doing that,” the actor continued. “And I guess that’s probably why I play so many villainous characters, because I love acting, and I’m really good at it. It’s a God-given talent, so for me to have a career, I have to figure out creatively and smartly and wisely how I can keep doing what I do.”
McDonough has been married to model Ruvé Robertson since 2003 and the couple shares five children. Today, the star is keeping busy appearing on Season 2 of History Channel’s “Project Blue Book,” which first premiered in 2019.
The show, which is based on a true story, explores U.S. Air Force-sponsored investigations into UFO-related phenomenon from 1947-70. Aidan Gillen from HBO’s “Game of Thrones” plays Dr. Allen Hynek, an astrophysicist who serves as a consultant to the Air Force project where he assesses reports on UFOs. McDonough stars as Gen. James Harding, an Air Force general determined to keep UFO sightings top secret.
