Like I said, I doubled Stephen on a USA Network Series called The Big Easy which shot in New Orleans, LA and I was the Stunt Coordinator for in 1996 and 1997. He was a very nice guy and a pleasure to work with. I doubled him in a complicated fight scene that involved a stair fall and a high fall. All parts of the fight that I could use Stephen in I did so the audience could see his face. He learned the choreography easily and performed all of his scenes very well. We did spend a little time during set ups talking about the old days on Tour of Duty and he still seamed to be quite fond of the show himself. It was a very good experience and I hope we get a chance to work together again sometime.

Ironically I never double Stephen when I worked on Tour of Duty. I doubled him in 1997 on a USA Series I did called The Big Easy, he was one of our guest stars.
On "Tour"  I was always a soldier, what we call ND or Non Descript.  
Most of the Stunt guys who worked the show would have been ND Soldiers for the purpose of getting killed or taking hard falls. It was a fun show to work on and it would be great to have something like again. I hope this was of some help.
