Personal Quote:

You are absolutely free to describe me as a turtle or something. Seriously. When you profile someone, there has to be a narrative, and my narrative just happens to be 'Who is he?', 'Oh, he's that guy' and 'He looks like a squid!' Sideways (2004) doesn't change that. Honestly, I never wanted to be more than a good supporting actor. Really, I enjoy it. See more »

Trivia:

He has twice portrayed an actual President of the United States. Firstly, the title role in John Adams (2008), the second President of the United States. Secondly, the role of Theodore Roosevelt (voice), the twenty-sixth President of the United States in The Roosevelts: An Intimate History (2014). See more »
