In an interview with Fancast.com Max has revealed that he had open heart surgery last February, and that was one of the reasons that influenced him to not continue his TV work.
As he told Adam Buckman: «Frankly, I do prefer living in New Jersey and that was one of the problems I had. I love playing in L.A., but my kids and my wife are back east, and we live part of the time in Italy, so it was hard to structure my life [and have a job in Los Angeles].
