Personal Quote:

I never resented being called a character actor in New York, but with the caste system they have in Hollywood, you feel the little sting of it. There is a distinction made between the person who is getting $20 million and everyone else. You're the one directors know they don't have to worry about, so they can turn their attention to more pressing problems, like finding the star a bigger trailer. See more »

Trivia:

Has appeared in two films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and A Few Good Men (1992). See more »
