Personal Quote:

[on playing Akady Balagan, a chess master, in the series 'Endgame'] The accent alone was something I had to really pay attention to. It had to be accurate, but it also had to be understandable. So much of that Russian accent happens at the back of your throat. It's hard to be really expressive from way back there.


Spent much of his youth hanging out in the high-school gym, watching Dad rehearse any number of plays. See more »
