Personal Quote:

Trivia:

He became friends with Aaron Eckhart at Brigham Young University. They have worked together at least five times: In the Company of Men (1997), Your Friends & Neighbors (1998), Nurse Betty (2000), Tumble (2000) and Possession (2002). See more »

Trademark:

All his films usually consist of a cruel and vicious battle of the sexes with the men portraying unlikeable and trashy misogynists, and the women either crafty vixens or vulnerable victims. See more »

Star Sign:

Pisces
