Interview Excerpts: "He seems so shy for an actor, actors are always trying to get
all the attention on themselves and he was very quiet and sort of
observant and then on stage he just stole the stage, always. It's this
sort of amazing duality in his personality."

finds a way to reach everyone in the way in which they need to be
reached... he models the desire and the appetite to be in all parts of
theatre...” - Olympia Dukakis
"...there's no line between the man and his work..."
