[Drew Carey], whose signature style includes a crewcut and horn-rimmed glasses, explains his hairstyle by saying, "It's always been there. I was a sergeant in the Marine Reserves when I started doing comedy. My original glasses were my actual Marine glasses."
In addition to serving as a Marine, Carey starred in the just-canceled NBC sitcom "The Good Life" and was a phenomenon on "The Tonight Show," with his performance included in the "Best of Carson" video series. He even won one round of "Star Search" before being bumped by then-Boston comic Joe Yanetti.
