Personal Quote:

I prefer film over television. I don't prefer film over theater. With television, there's less time to shoot and everything is rushed. You have too many hands and cooks. There's the network and the producer and the writers. Too many people getting involved and stirring the mix. It doesn't make for good art. See more »

Trivia:

Nominated for a 2019 Academy Award in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role as George W. Bush in Vice (2018) but lost to Mahershala Ali for Green Book (2018). See more »
