Personal Quote:

(On The Client) The real joy of that situation was getting to work with J.T. Walsh. I had worked with him early in my career [in The Beniker Gang, 1985], and he was drinking at the time, and he was a terrible person to be around. By the time we did The Client, he'd achieved sobriety, and he was the most wonderful, gracious-just a true prince. See more »
