Personal Quote:

Acting is a lark but I'm trying to work less. They say: 'Bob I know you're trying to retire but we've got a little swan song here which is the business...' and I get talked into it. The more you don't want to work, the more work you get. I want to be at home with the wife but she doesn't want me to retire, she wants me out of the house. See more »

Trivia:

Has portrayed four WWII leaders in films - Nikita Khrushchev (Enemy at the Gates (2001)), Winston Churchill (World War II: When Lions Roared (1994)), Benito Mussolini (Mussolini and I (1985)) and Lavrenti Beria (The Inner Circle (1991)). See more »
