Personal Quote:

The movies I want to make are not people's priority. Nobody would touch them. They cost a lot of money, and studios no longer finance development, so if I didn't pay for them myself they wouldn't happen.

Trivia:

Former brother-in-law of Brooke Palance and Cody Palance. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently casts actor 'Richard Masur'.

Star Sign:
