Personal Quote:

I heard about the project over a year before we began. My American agent said, 'Oh, you might want to read _'In Cold Blood'_ because they're talking about you for Capote, but the script's with Johnny Depp and Sean Penn at the moment.' So, these things take their time to dribble down the food chain. See more »


He won the London Film Critics Circle "Best British Actor" for his portrayal of Truman Capote. See more »
