Personal Quote:

People have been a bit leery of [the 2001 version.] People take [the 1968 version] seriously and people are very fond of it so they want to make sure that you did a good job. See more »

Trivia:

Was considered for the role of Severus Snape in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), but dropped out to star in Tim Burton's remake of Planet of the Apes (1968). The role was then given to Alan Rickman. See more »
