Personal Quote:

I've already felt that I want to direct. Being an executive producer is like the best job in the world because you make all these executive decisions and then you leave the money to other people. You don't have to be on set and counting beans. See more »


Was the very first person to be cast in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001). In fact, he was selected for the role of Hagrid by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. See more »
