Personal Quote:

I don't read reviews. I can always spot an actor who's read his reviews, because if they're good, he's swaying about the stage, and if they're bad, he's changed his performance. He comes in limping or something. See more »

Trivia:

Was the first choice for the role of Lord Darlington in Mike Barker's A Good Woman (2004), starring Helen Hunt and Scarlett Johansson. Turned it down to play Bassanio in Michael Radford's adaptation of William Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" (2004). See more »

Trademark:

Frequently plays a character who writes. In most of his films, he has played characters who write either novels, plays, poetry or other literary works.
