Personal Quote:

My first reaction was I didn't think it was good. Thankfully, I'm a dumb actor and there are better people like director Doug Hughes and playwright John Patrick Shanley, himself who know this is a great script. And they go, 'Brían, you're dumb!' And I go, 'Thank you, Doug!' And I go ahead and do it." - first thoughts on the Tony Award winning play, Doubt. See more »


In 2004 he withdrew from a Kennedy Center production of "A Streetcar Named Desire" starring Patricia Clarkson and girlfriend Amy Ryan in the role of Mitch in order to follow his hit off-Broadway show "Frozen" to Broadway. He subsequently won a Tony. See more »
