Here are some of the "Fast Facts" about Paul Hogan, the writer/actor of the Crocodile Dundee movies, found in an article on the CBS web site. (Am I the only person to not know he and his American co-star of the films were married?)The latest movie -- 3rd so far -- is "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles."

FAST FACTS ABOUT PAUL HOGAN

Paul Hogan was born in 1939 in Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia.

He made his professional showbiz debut as a blindfolded, tap-dancing knife thrower on the Aussie TV amateur contest New Faces.

Hogan developed and starred in the comedy-variety program The Paul Hogan Show, which aired in Australia from 1973 to 1984. The weekly half-hour TV show made him the most popular comedian in Australia. He also starred in the British
film Hogan in London (1975), before trying his hand at writing.

Hogan first came to the attention of American audiences in the title role of Crocodile Dundee (1986) and its sequel (1988). In those films, he played a rough-hewn Australian trying to protect a beautiful American journalist.

He won a Golden Globe for the first performance, and was nominated for an Oscar for assisting on the screenplay.

He married his Dundee co-star Linda Koswalski in 1990, the same year that their third film together, Almost an Angel, was released.
