Personal Quote:

I've never felt completely satisfied with what I've done. I tend to see things too critically. I'm trying to get over that. I've got the Jewish guilt and the Irish shame and it's a hell of a job distinguishing which is which. See more »

Trivia:

Inspired the Kevin Kline Mustache Principle, according to movie critic Roger Ebert: Kline always has facial hair in comedies, but is clean-shaven in dramatic roles. There are several exceptions to the rule, most notably In & Out (1997), Silverado (1985) and Wild Wild West (1999) (although in the latter, he did wear a beard and mustache to play President Ulysses S. Grant). See more »

Trademark:

Usually has a mustache in comedies and is clean-shaven in dramas

Star Sign:

Scorpio
