Personal Quote:

[his advice to aspiring actors] They should be very versatile. Versatility is what's going to give them the longevity. The world is opening up and a lot more stories and a lot more interesting scenes to portray in film. Versatility will help them. They must be able to see the world, learn the world, and bring it to their craft. See more »

Trivia:

You can see him reading a book on the plane in his big action film Passenger 57 (1992). The book is "The Art of War" which is the same title as a movie that he starred in eight years later, though unrelated to it. See more »
