Bits of Trivia about Dean: He was LeAnn Rimes on-set acting coach on both a Hallmark Movie of the Week and on the soap opera Days of Our Lives and he played the role of one of the ‘bad guys’ in the Warner Brothers’ blockbuster TWISTER (Dean urges you to not look to hard for him in the film however, sharing that ‘the flying cow ended up with a big part than I did.”). His wife Lena, and their two strong and wonderfully nutty daughters, Sofia & Ella, live in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
