French Stewart's trademark expression on "3rd Rock From the Sun" wasn't something the show's producers dreamed up.
"I came in with the squint," Stewart told Newsday in Sunday's editions. "I'm just naturally lidded, and it was something I'd done before. I knew the character was an idiot, and it gave me a dull, uncomprehending look."
Fans of Stewart, who plays alien Harry Solomon on the NBC sitcom, can see him on the big screen, too. His movie "Love Stinks" opens in theaters this weekend.
