Personal Quote:

It's been said, truthfully, that every actor has a moment in every year, at least, when he knows for sure that he'll never work again. That's a more or less humorous way to point to the insecurity that comes with the job. I think that's why [Laurence Olivier] said, "If you have any choice at all, don't be an actor". See more »

Trivia:

Ten days after graduating from Harvard, he landed his first role in the Broadway production of "A Patriot for Me" (with Maximilian Schell), which closed after 49 performances. He got his agent after giving a letter of introduction to actress Jane Alexander. His story of how he found an agent and a Broadway job so quickly was written about in an issue of "Ripley's Believe It or Not". See more »
