Personal Quote:

When I'm shooting I don't care who the star is. I have an actor playing a part, and I'm serving the script, not serving anyone's career. My hope is that, after twenty minutes, perhaps the audience forgets it is George Clooney or Jack Nicholson and just sees the character. See more »

Trivia:

Owns the Winnebago driven by Warren Schmidt (Jack Nicholson) in About Schmidt (2002). See more »
