Personal Quote:

"There's a wealth of literature out there which, hopefully, will be, you know, exploded in the future, and I personally find it very rewarding to be involved with classic storytelling, and sort of legendary characters." (Spoken in answer to question at Cannes Film Festival "Troy" Interview.) See more »

Trivia:

Has played both Mythological Greek hero Odysseus in Troy (2004) and Greek God Zeus in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief (2010). See more »

Trademark:

Often plays men who start off as heroes and, sometime during the course of the film, take a dark turn and become villainous (Agent 006 in GoldenEye (1995), Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), Ian Howe in National Treasure (2004)). See more »
