Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)

Attended the renowned Steppenwolf Company.

 

Calls Long Gone (1987) (TV) the most fun he ever had making a movie. He made it instead of appearing in Platoon (1986).

 

Theater in Chicago will always be my first love. It started careers for me and about 50 of my friends. We all love coming back. As soon as the TV show is over, I`ll be back in Chicago, doing live theater. (on what he plans to do after "CSI")

 

(On seeing the Marlon Brando movie "Last Tango in Paris") "It was the first time that I understood that acting was an art form. It was not Clint Eastwood on a horse, Bob Hope in a road movie. It was not Don Knotts in The Incredible Mr. Limpet. These are favorite movies of mine, too. But when I sat in Last Tango in Paris, the lightbulb went on. To this day, Brando is the one I want to meet, and the one I`m terrified to meet."
