Personal Quote:

[on working with Daniel Day-Lewis on 'The Last of the Mohicans'] 'Hawkeye' is pretty close to who Daniel is as a person. Daniel is a deep, romantic man with a very strong value system. He's kind of classic. He's drawn to see great values in simple things. He's somebody who eschews celebrity. He and Rebecca have a very strong family, a real literary sensibility. See more »

Trivia:

Was Will Smith's personal choice to direct Ali (2001). Spike Lee campaigned vigorously against Mann, saying that only a black director could do Ali's story justice. See more »

Trademark:

Often has a scene overlooking a broad horizon of some sort.Neil and Eady staring at the bright L.A. landscape in Heat (1995) and the end credits of The Last of the Mohicans (1992) are both examples of this. See more »
