Personal Quote:

[My characters] all start with rhythms and sounds. Once I hear the voice and get into the rhythm, the attitude and the physicality just come out on their own. Ching Change, the Church Lady and Hans have a meter and pitch that are distinctly their own. See more »

Trivia:

Underwent open-heart surgery for a blocked artery in 1997 but had the wrong artery operated on. Later sued for medical malpractice and was awarded 7.5 million dollars. He's had to undergo five operations in total to correct his heart problem. See more »
