Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Has acted in several religion-themed movies or played the part of a religious character, including: Priest (2011) and The Reckoning (2002) where he plays Priests who question their faith and go off on their own tangent; Legion (2010) where he plays the Archangel Michael who also questions his moral fibre and risks disobedience to God to do what he feels is right; and The Da Vinci Code (2006) ...
