Personal Quote:

[on his desire to make a foreign language film] I'd be very keen to act a foreign language film, especially French. I like Jacques Audiard - especially Rust and Bone (2012) and A Prophet (2009) - and Michael Haneke, to me, he is probably the great director of the moment. His last four or five films have been pretty much faultless. I'd learn Congolese for him. See more »


Is a huge fan of Little Britain. See more »


Often plays a representative of the ideal man (Gattaca, The Talented Mr. Ripley, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence) See more »
