Personal Quote:

I saw a bit of director Stephen Gaghan's movie Syriana (2005), and I wish I'd played the part that was offered to me - [George Clooney]'s part. I didn't feel strongly enough about the truth of the material and I think I made a mistake. I think the film underwent some changes, and I think a lot of it is very truthful: the things that I thought weren't, were obviated after I left the table. See more »

Trivia:
