Personal Quote:

A common misperception of me is...that I am a tough, rough northerner, which I suppose I am really. But I'm pretty mild-mannered most of the time. It's the parts that you play I guess. I don't mind it. I'm not a tough guy. I'd like to act as a fair, easygoing, kind man at some point. See more »

Trivia:

The only film awards he's ever won are from the Screen Actors Guild, the National Board of Review and the Broadcast Film Critics Association; these awards were all for Best Cast Ensemble for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), in which he only appeared for three seconds in archive footage.
