Trivia:

Shares two roles with Hans Conried. Conried appeared in the Disney animated version of Peter Pan (1953), while Isaacs appeared in the 2003 live action film. Both films followed a tradition encouraged by J.M. Barrie, and followed in most stage productions, that Mr. Darling and Captain Hook be played by the same actor. Accordingly, he and Conried played both parts in their respective films. See more »
