Personal Quote:

To me, every part is a character part. That is not to say that I think every actor ought to be able to play anything. He must of course realise his limitations and be extremely humble about them. But it is fatal to allow himself to be tied to one particular type of part.

Trivia:

Won Broadway's 1967 Tony Award as Best Actor (Dramatic) for Harold Pinter's "The Homecoming," a role he recreated in the film version of the same name, The Homecoming (1973). Previously, he was nominated for a Tony in 1963 as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Dramatic) for "Photo Finish." See more »
