Personal Quote:

[on Sean Penn in 'At Close Range'] I had this little shed out I front of my house, and Sean went to the store and bought heavy weights, brought them back and put them in the shed. And I remember he was so surprised, once he committed himself to that, how his body changed so dramatically, in a short period of time. But he had to eat an awful lot too, and that was hard for him, funnily enough. See more »

Trivia:

Was original choice to be lead director and producer on the first season of the TV show 24 due to his visual style before being replaced by Stephen Hopkins. See more »
