Personal Quote:

There's nothing in the United States to do except the independents. Certainly not in the studios. It's a situation where films are made for $100m and they knock out all competition. Their audiences are eight to 20. It feels silly being a 60-plus year-old man in those films, which are basically cartoons and high technology. See more »

Trivia:

Considered for the lead role in The Thing (1982), which went to Kurt Russell. See more »
