Personal Quote:

There are many actors who have inspired me: Spencer Tracy for his incredible elegance and, of course, Cary Grant. But, there's also an Italian actor I admire a great deal: Alberto Sordi. See more »


As of 2010, he has been nominated three times for the Tony award: in 1998 as Best Actor (Play) for "Art"; in 2004 as Best Actor (Musical) for portraying Tevye in a revival of "Fiddler on the Roof"; in 2010 as Best Actor (Play) for "Red." Both "Art" and "Red" deal with struggle of character relations and personal views over a canvas painting. See more »
