Personal Quote:

[on meeting with 'Jeff Bridges' to discuss The Contender (2000)] When he answered the door, he was in his Lebowski regalia. Not Lebowski-like wardrobe, I mean THE Lebowski wardrobe...When we were done he put his arms around me and said, 'The Dude as The President. Who'd have thunk it?' See more »

Trivia:

Has directed movies or TV series featuring or involving six different fictional U.S. presidents. See more »

Trademark:
