The young actor, who lives in this Bergen County community, considers himself, at 15, a 'veteran of show business'... Having finished three more films since On Golden Pond, Doug is in what he calls a 'hiatus,' which means that he's back in Indian Hills High School as a sophomore and taking exams, instead of traveling around with a tutor."
