He set his career off in style by starring in the 1984 horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street. For the rest of the 80s Andrews did not have any major hits, mainly focusing on a TV career.

In 1998 he played another astronaut, Frank Borman, in the HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon. He had a brief role as Major General Eldridge G. Chapman, commander of the 13th Airborne Division, in the Band of Brothers miniseries. 1999 was a great year for Andrews: not only that he did get the success from Switched at Birth but also Fight Club, which starred Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. Andrews started off the millennium by starring in Navigating the Heart before moving on to the sequel of the cannibal series Hannibal, starring Anthony Hopkins.

In 2002 he appeared in A Walk to Remember, and in 2003 he starred in Two Soldiers, The Chester Story and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. He also replaced John M.
