Personal Quote:

Marlon Brando had an innate shrewdness, finding ways to do things better than everyone else. One of the great tragedies is that Brando never developed his tremendous potential. He really was the godfather to young actors coming up in the seventies and even today. He was the guy, really, more than [Laurence Olivier], or anybody. See more »


Was considered for the role of Police Chief Martin Brody in the horror film Jaws (1975), which went to Roy Scheider. See more »


Often plays tough, macho characters. See more »
