Personal Quote:

[on the Star Trek villains] The best villains are the ones that you can understand. And the really great villains are the ones that you root for. One of us is gonna live and one of us is gonna die. And it doesn't really matter what anyone's motives are at that point. It's just Darwin. See more »

Trivia:

Originally suggested Derek Jacobi and Mick Jagger for the roles of (respectively) H.G. Wells and Jack the Ripper in his first film Time After Time (1979). He was persuaded to use Malcolm McDowell and David Warner instead, but got his way when he insisted on hiring Miklos Rozsa to compose the music. See more »
