Profile:

  • Proclivity towards law enforcement roles.
  • Proclivity towards ethnically diverse gangster roles.
  • Theater has had a major influence on his career.
  • Strongly influenced by Gary Cooper and Charles Laughton.
  • Consistently demonstrates a remarkably brave and challenging choice of roles (i.e., Dog Day Afternoon, Cruising, Angels in America).
  • An idiosyncratic adherence to the Method approach to acting.
  • Skill may partially lie in his ability to entirely lose the mindset and/or forget minute details of previous roles (e.g., he claims to continually forget how to load, unload, and strip a gun despite doing it in dozens of roles).
  • Former years marked by roles of inward intensity (a common feature of talented, driven, and hungry actors).
  • In latter years, he has shown a preference for more explosive roles (perhaps the consequence of playing several taxing roles early on).
  • Tendency towards introspection and rumination.
  • He took a nearly 5 year sabbatical from the screen after the critical and commercial failure of Revolution (1985).
