Personal Quote:

[on the Fast & Furious and Riddick franchises]: My whole approach to making these movies and to creating these sagas is saying to the studio, 'The audience is paying attention to the nuances and all the story points that lead up to this film. The more you acknowledge that, the better movie you have.' See more »

Trivia:

Revolution Studios wanted him for the title role in Hellboy (2004), but director Guillermo del Toro thought that Ron Perlman was the perfect choice for the role, and would not direct the movie if he was not cast. See more »
