Personal Quote:

Get the right actor, and the job's halfway done. I've only miscast major people twice in my life - out of respect to them, I won't tell you who. After a couple of days' shooting, I had to tell them I was letting them go. It was hideous. See more »

Trivia:

The White Ribbon (2009) is one of his favourite films. See more »
