Personal Quote:

[on his return to acting after 8 years with Edge of Darkness (2010)] I think any kind of hiatus one takes in an artistic journey is going to make a huge difference. The pause will inform the choices that you make. I kind of felt I was getting stale so being away for a while has been good. See more »

Trivia:

Was considered for the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman (1989) (particularly with Richard Donner directing), but he was busy with Lethal Weapon 2 (1989). See more »

Trademark:

Has often portrayed a widower, in films such as Mad Max (the sequels), Lethal Weapon film series, Braveheart (1995), The Patriot (2000), Signs (2002), and Edge of Darkness (2010). See more »

Star Sign:

Capricorn
