Personal Quote:

[on being cast in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'] Sometimes you work on a movie and you're not quite sure. You sense some anxiety in the director, that they're not sure exactly what they want. But with Wes [Anderson] you know he's definitely steering the ship and doing exactly what he thinks is best for the movie. See more »

Trivia:

He is known for his improvisational abilities, which he mostly contributes to films other than the more personal ones he does with Wes Anderson. Many of the funniest lines in his movies are his improvisations. See more »
