He has also appeared on a number of television series such as, "Tales from the Crypt", "The Outer Limits", "Walker, Texas Ranger", "Touched by an Angel", "The District", "Law & Order; Criminal Intent" and "Fringe". 

Along with working as an actor he has had the chance to work on the other side of the industry as a assistant production manager for the film, "Malcolm X" (1992) starring Denzel Washington and as a co-producer on, "Do the Right Thing" (1989).

Savage has married twice, first to Susan Youngs in 1967 and they had two children together before the marriage came to an end in 1969.  He then wed Sandi Schultz in 1993 and they remain together today.
