Go Away With ... Blair Underwood
Fans are used to seeing Blair Underwood playing a variety of roles: a hotshot attorney ("L.A. Law"), a charismatic doctor ("Sex and the City") and a ruthless businessman ("Dirty Sexy Money"). But in the new NBC series "Ironside," Underwood tackles the part of wheelchair-bound detective, Robert Ironside -- the iconic role made famous by Raymond Burr. Born in Tacoma, Wash., Underwood has resided in Los Angeles for the past 26 years. Thanks to being an "Army brat that was constantly on the go," the 49-year-old actor learned to go with the flow as far as travel was concerned. Today, he says there are few things he enjoys more than taking his family to a new destination. Fans may follow Underwood on Twitter at https://twitter.com/blairunderwood.
