I have seen 4 of the top 10 here and more. He appears pretty much the same in every role. I don't think it would be difficult to recognize him on the street. He has a somewhat deep voice. He can make a commanding presence without being too threatening. He has one Producer credit to his name. It's been awhile, but I saw him in Escape from Alcatraz with Clint Eastwood.moreless
