Personal Quote:

[on his play 'Gold Mountain'] I had to learn to respect my father - and I do now. But we have the father and son characters have conversations I would never have been able to have with my father. And I love that about any kind of drama: you can make the inarticulate articulate in drama without destroying the reality of what they're doing. See more »

Trivia:

Had a role in Empire of The Sun but it was deleted from the final print. See more »
