Personal Quote:

Peter Sellers is probably my favorite actor of all time. I just watched Dr Strangelove (Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)) the other night. I'm obsessed with him, even in The Party (1968) and Being There (1979). Peter Sellers can do no wrong in my book. I also love Ricky Gervais, Sacha Baron Cohen, Steve Coogan. See more »

Trivia:

Trademark:

He loves photographing through mirrors. In "Cabin Fever" Marcy examines herself, in "Hostel" the girls at the Hostel are first shown in reflection and Kana kills herself after seeing her reflection, and in "Hostel Part 2" there are several sequences of girls posing in triptych mirrors. See more »
