Personal Quote:

I can't leave the profession - I have needs like everyone else. But I would have preferred to follow something more solitary that didn't depend upon an entire organization to make it happen.

Trivia:

Known in earlier movies for his long hair and hippie-like appearance. See more »

Trademark:

His deep, hard voice
