Plays Doug Wilson on Showtime’s 'Weeds'

Kevin Nealon, who plays Doug Wilson on Showtime’s “Weeds” airing Mondays.

Last book I bought:
“Beach Road” by James Patterson and Peter de Jonge

Book I’m reading:
“Make Your Golf Dream a Reality” by Lou Hays

Total number of books I own:
Gads and gads of books. Many on my bookshelves at home and many more in storage. I am a quick reader, too. Sometimes, even with the “books on tape,” I’ll finish before the narrator.

Three books that mean a lot to me:
“The Road Less Traveled” by M. Scott Peck
“Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book: Lessons and Teachings from a Lifetime of Golf” by Harvey Penick with Bud Shrake
“What to Expect When You’re Expecting” by Heidi Murkoff, Arlene Eisenberg and Sandee Hathaway — in other words, less golf

Last film I saw:
“Knocked Up,” directed by Judd Apatow — It’s hard to see films now with a five month old baby. He throws popcorn at everyone and pukes up Diet Coke and Milk Duds. I also saw the last twenty minutes of “Ratatouille” since I was in a cineplex and no one was checking. So, technically, “Ratatouille” was the last film I saw.

Three films that mean a lot to me:
“The Heartbreak Kid,” directed by Elaine May
“It’s A Wonderful Life,” directed by Frank Capra
Some of our old 8 mm home movies — my third birthday party with the Steuceks

Last CD I bought:
“Baby Einstein”

Song currently playing:
“Everything You Want,” Vertical Horizon

Songs that mean a lot to me:
“Crystal Blue Persuasion,” Tommy James and the Shondells
“Here Comes the Sun,” George Harrison
“What a Wonderful World,” Louis Armstrong

Favorite Drinks:
Diet Coke, Amstel Light, Merlot, decaf coffee, peppermint tea –but only at night with cookies

Favorite Charity:
Peta, SpcaLA, Los Angeles Mission, the Amanda Foundation, Dream Foundation, Last Chance for Animals, Make-A-Wish, Much Love Animal Rescue, Unicef, Farm Sanctuary

Favorite Vacation:
St. Barths, French West Indies

Favorite Vice:
Sweets — specifically dark chocolate, ice cream and cookies, oh yeah, and meth…kidding

Five people who I’d like to see answer this survey:
Five 2008 presidential candidates
