"I don't know if I'd call him a "good" actor but he's definitely a unique actor; he's unlike anyone else I've ever seen on the screen." - MDA

"He's a favourite of mine, ever since Speed. He might not have the widest range as an actor but when he fits the part he can be perfect in a laid back zen kind of way." - LadyEdith
