Personal Quote:

[on his role in Bulworth] That was a lot of fun. It was kind of a movie-making highlight for me, because Mr. Beatty invited me into his process in a very personal way. He was Warren Beatty, you know what I mean? I grew up watching his movies. It was a thrill. It was a lot of late nights and craziness, but I'm very glad to be in the movie. I love the role, and I love the movie. See more »

Trivia:

Since Diana Spencer was the great-granddaughter of the 3rd Baron Fermoy and Platt was his great-great-grandson, this makes him a second-cousin, once-removed, of Princess Diana, Princess of Wales. By extension, he is the third cousin of Prince William Windsor. See more »
