Personal Quote:

[on his portrayal of Count Dracula on Broadway] I don't play him as a hair-raising ghoul. He is a nobleman, an elegant man with a difficult problem... a man with a unique and distinctive social problem: he has to have blood to live and he is immortal. See more »


He has two roles in common with Duncan Regehr: (1) Langella played Don Diego de la Vega / Zorro in The Mark of Zorro (1974) while Regehr played him in Zorro (1990) and (2) Langella played Count Dracula in Dracula (1979) while Regehr played him in The Monster Squad (1987). Both actors also played Bajoran politicians in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). See more »
