Personal Quote:

I have never really capitalized effectively on the successful films I have appeared in. And I have been in some pretty damn good films. What it comes down to is what someone told me years ago -- if you have one hit and the next two are not successful, then you have to start from scratch again. That's what happened to me. It's like a game, I suppose, and I've been doing OK. See more »

Trivia:

More recently, he has been living in the Seattle area and has agreed to play the role of "The Stage Manager" in Thorton Wilder's "Our Town" at the Intiman Theater. See more »

Trademark:
