Good actor, bit of a shock.
Good in Reservoir Dogs, Good in True Romance, the ones that come immediately to mind.
(As I am secure in my general beliefs, I choose not to wish death on his brother, himself a fine actor and good director, or care much about his political beliefs, then again I'm not living in a neo McCarthy era either).
