Trivia:

Has a cult following due to the weekly 'Kermode and Mayo's Film Review' on BBC, Radio Five Live, where he is regularly saluted ('Hello to Jason Isaacs!') by his former classmate and film critic Dr Mark Kermode, a practice which the fan base of this show picked up. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently plays elegant villains
