Personal Quote:

[on working with F. Murray Abraham in Homeland (2011)] Murray loves what he does - I think he loves it more than breathing. He has a 'quiet' about him that draws you to him and commands your attention. He's a thrill to work with, meaning he almost does it all for you, you just need to show up and be in the room with him.

Trivia:

Was not asked to reprise his Tony Award-winning role of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara in the movie version of Evita (1996). See more »

Nickname:

The Patink
