Personal Quote:

I don't know what I like. I like what I like... being an assistant storyteller, helping create characters that bring a story dramatic shape and dimension. See more »

Trivia:

Has named Gregory Peck and Gary Cooper as his favorite actors. Two of his favorite movies are the anti-McCarthyism western High Noon (1952), for which Cooper won his second Oscar, and the civil rights drama To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), for which Peck won his only Oscar. See more »
