Personal Quote:

Inspired the Kevin Kline Mustache Principle, according to movie critic Roger Ebert: Kline always has facial hair in comedies, but is clean-shaven in dramatic roles. There are several exceptions to the rule, most notably In & Out (1997), Silverado (1985), and Wild Wild West (1999) (although in the latter, he did wear a beard and mustache to play President Ulysses S. Grant). See more »
