Personal Quote:

Robert De Niro taught me how to listen, and how to be part of the conversation. It's not just about reading your lines and saying what's in the script, you have to understand your character, along with the other characters so that you can always respond. See more »


Has appeared in three films with Robert De Niro: Raging Bull (1980), Cop Land (1997) and Analyze That (2002). See more »
