Trivia:

Turned down the role of Johnny Rotten in Sid and Nancy (1986), because he felt the film depicted history that was "too recent." See more »

Trademark:

Often plays Dutch or Jewish characters (as in Vincent & Theo (1990), Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (1990), Little Odessa (1994), The Million Dollar Hotel (2000) and Invincible (2001)) See more »
