Personal Quote:

(In response to his first starring film role in The Visitor (2007)) I would say 'I'll go back to my trailer now', and they'd say, 'No, no, you're in the next scene. It's one of those things that I didn't know if I would ever get an opportunity to try. I've been waiting my entire professional life for this experience. See more »
