Mark's second son, Ty, is born. Mark also stars opposite Marlee Matlin in the series Reasonable Doubts, playing a Chicago detective who works alongside a deaf District Attorney. In preparation for this role, Mark learns and masters sign language.
In the mid-90s, Mark takes on an unlikely part of a rodeo clown in the series Harts of the West, plays Tombstone's sheriff and Kevin Costner's rival in Wyatt Earp, then settles into a more familiar role as a private eye in the short-lived series Charlie Grace.
When a car crashes near his Brentwood home, Mark grabs a sledgehammer and smashes the burning car's windows, then pulls two teenage boys to safety. He then dodges the media attention that follows the event, refusing to accept the label "hero."
Hero or not, Mark certainly plays one on TV when he takes on the role of Mercury astronaut Wally Schirra in From the Earth to the Moon. He also returns to familiar blue scrubs in Chicago Hope, this time as a Jack McNeil, a surgeon with a gambling addiction.
