Comments About Character:
...it was a rattling good part. There’s humor there and, although he’s immortal, there’s a lot of humanity. There’s a chance to twinkle. He gets very stern. He shouts a bit. He’s very wise. He has a fight or two. There was a lot to do in the part! I think perhaps the enormity of the adventure was appealing, too. --Newsweek (12/6/01)
