1Acting is probably the number one team sport in America as far as I'm concerned.
2Graham Yost is a genius, and I know that very well because we worked together on 'Band of Brothers' and 'Boomtown.'
3The great thing about 'Justified' is that the writers will craft a scene, but if the actors come up with a great idea, they're 100% for it.
4With four kids, it's hard to watch anything other than 'Sesame Street.'


1Played the voice of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the 2010 animated short film "Green Arrow" and played Damien Darhk (enemy of Green Arrow) in the live-action TV series "Arrow" (2012).
2He has played the same character (Damien Darhk) in three different series: Arrow (2012), The Flash (2014) and Legends of Tomorrow (2016).
3According to Nathan Fillion in his appearance on the Nerdist podcast, Neal McDonough was also under consideration for the part of Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Firefly (2002).
4Is a huge fan of Warren Zevon.
5His parents were both born in Ireland, his father in County Galway and his mother in County Tipperary.
6Is a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity.

10In grade school, his first acting role was that of the Cowardly Lion in "The Wizard of Oz". According to McDonough, he really wanted to play the Tin Man. In 2007, he finally got his chance, appearing in the title role of Sci-Fi Network (now Syfy)'s miniseries Tin Man (2007).
11Like his Tin Man (2007) co-star Zooey Deschanel, he appeared in advertising for the clothing chain The Gap Inc.

14His brother Gerard appeared as a contestant on an episode of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire". He left with $32,000 after giving the incorrect answer for the $64,000 question.
15His character Lieutenant Hawk in Star Trek: First Contact (1996) was originally written as the first openly gay character in any Star Trek series or movie, but all references to his sexual orientation were written out of later drafts of the screenplay. The character was later confirmed as having been gay in the Star Trek tie-in novel "Section 31: Rogue" by Andy Mangels and Michael A. Martin.
16Was named Mr. BHS in his senior year at Barnstable High School (a male spoof on the Junior Miss Pageant).
17His parents are Catherine and Frank McDonough, both of whom emigrated from Ireland, with his mother coming from County Tipperary, Province of Munster, and his father from County Galway, Province of Connacht.
18Is one of 6 children, has 4 brothers and one sister.
