Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I think people always think success in show business gives them the right to be moral political arbiters. I'm not in that camp. I think you can privately do whatever you want, but I'm always suspicious of how much ego is involved. I think the government will survive no matter what Ed Norton thinks of it. See more »

Trivia:

Did not decide to pursue a career in film making until he was in his early thirties. See more »

Trademark:

His movies will have scenes in a seedy grocery store (Flatliners (1990), Falling Down (1993), A Time to Kill (1996)). See more »
