Personal Quote:

[on his villain roles] I remember one critic, who used to write for a magazine in New York, who said I played the most likable villains that he'd ever seen in the movies. Well, what may have accounted for it was the fact that I always played my villains as if I was the hero and all the others were the villains! See more »
