Esai Morales doesn't want to talk about his high-profile television pilot or his upcoming TV miniseries. He's finished--for the day, anyway--anguishing over his acting career, which has had more ups and downs than a novice skier on a black diamond run.

Most actors consider themselves lucky to appear on one television series. Esai Morales can currently be seen in two: the long-running ABC drama "NYPD Blue" and the PBS drama "American Family." In addition to acting, Morales is on the national board of the Screen Actors Guild. He shared some of his favorite ways to unwind: Set sail I'm a landlubber who's becoming sea-friendly. I'm learning to sail on a 1960s-era 25-foot Cal [sailboat] at the marina [in Marina del Rey].

Esai Morales, who played Rashid in "On Wings of Eagles," is the most exciting, attractive and talented young man I've seen this season. His dominating action, in stark contrast to the program's otherwise dull and routine performances, saved the second half. Let's see much more of him. Paula Lea, Arcadia
