Personal Quote:

Some people approach acting with all these things in their head, making it more complicated than it needs to be, way too cerebral. I don't want to know that an actor lived in a cave for 12 days so that he could prepare for a part.

Trivia:

Was considered for the role of Joey Zasa in The Godfather: Part III (1990). See more »
