Personal Quote:

(1994 quote) I would love, more than anything, to do an out-and-out farce with huge physical energy. Just because you're from the minimalist school, it doesn't mean you can't go big. I enjoy humor, and it's something I've gotten very little chance to explore. I don't get offered those parts. And if I don't get offered a part, I don't get a part. Ever. See more »

Trivia:

After portraying Paul McCartney in a television movie, the two met by chance while staying at the same hotel and became real life friends. See more »
