Personal Quote:

[on being gay] "From the time I told my mother, I've been living openly. But really, I was born in 1956. I'm one of those old-fashioned homosexuals, not one of the newfangled ones who are born joining parades. My family referred to them as "fags", and that was it." See more »

Trivia:

After replacing Richard Dreyfuss in the London production of "The Producers", a back injury forced him to leave the show 2 weeks before the end of his contract. See more »
