Personal Quote:

On his film offers after Die Hard (1988): Producers said things like, "You will play the guy who comes in with a long coat and machine gun and kills everybody in the room. And use that same expression on your face you used in Die Hard." See more »

Trivia:

He danced with the American Ballet Theater which was at the time being run by his childhood friend and former classmate Mikhail Baryshnikov until Baryshnikov forced him out in 1982. Godunov was crushed and betrayed. He eventually bounced back and started his own dance troupe (which he danced in). But many of his closest friends said, "After that, he never put himself into ballet completely." See more »
