Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I think of being an actor as kind of a young man's gig. It's emasculating, in a way, people messing with you and putting make-up on you and telling you when to wake up and when to go to sleep, holding your hand to cross the street. I can do it up to a certain point and then I start to feel like a puppet. See more »

Trivia:

His line, "I am a Goddamn genius", is quoted in both Hollow Man (2000) and Trapped (2002). See more »

Trademark:

Deep resonant voice See more »
