Personal Quote:

I did Hudson Hawk (1991) with the best of intentions. It had a great cast and looked great on paper and my agent said it would be a big success. You go into something thinking it's going to be the next big thing. You're wise in retrospect but I regret doing that. See more »

Trivia:

The initial E in his name came about because there was already someone registered with Equity as Richard Grant. Richard was born Richard Grant Esterhuysen. So with permission of the other Richard Grant and Equity, he added the E. to his name. See more »
