    He started his show business career as a clown.
    Despite his long acting resume, he’s not a household name.
    He describes his looks as ‘salty pepper and sallow’ and his personality as ‘a free-range kind of actor guy with a sense of the communal.’
    ‘Premiere’ magazine implied that he looks like Eeyore.
    He is one of the busiest character actors of his day.
    He acted in many movies by acclaimed director John Sayles.
    He actually likes being criticized, saying: ‘There’s always something valid, that you can use.’
    He memorably portrayed journalist Edward R. Murrow in ‘Good Night, and Good Luck.’
    While playing Murrow, he managed to smoke over two packs of cigarettes a day without getting hooked.
    He is reportedly modest and down-to-earth.
    On movie sets, he learns the names of all crew members, and even helps them to take down the equipment.
