Personal Quote:

[2015] I just finished a movie. But it's not a comedy. It's called Henry Joseph Church (2015), directed by Bruce Beresford. I hadn't done a movie in five years; I'd been waiting for something really special. Then this thing came along. It got me off the couch. It's about a man who's hired to cook for a dying woman for six months and becomes part of the family. You'll be hearing about it. See more »

Trivia:

He doesn't drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes and the only drug he takes is caffeine. See more »
