Skerritt has been a presence in American film and television for over half a century, starting his career with Robert Redford and Robert Altman. Audiences have come to recognize Skerritt as 'that rugged outdoors type' in everything from his lead roles in such iconic films as "MASH," "Top Gun," "Steel Magnolias" and "Alien," as well as TV classics like "Picket Fences" and "Cheers" to the popular series of "Guess?" ads in which he was featured. With quality and truthfulness as a benchmark for his work, Skerritt discusses honesty in craft, Hollywood's broken film industry, and the importance of following your bliss with The Artist Toolbox. "Young people approach me and ask me how to get into the business. I have no idea how to get into the business," admits Skerritt. "You can't rely on luck.
