Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

(1996) The only time in my entire life as an actor when I felt I didn't know what I was doing was on Tango & Cash (1989), when I had to dress up as a woman.

Trivia:

One of his heroes since boyhood was John Wayne. He was able to use his dead-on John Wayne impression (to twisted effect) in Grindhouse (2007). See more »

Trademark:

Often has long hair or a mullet
