BIOGRAPHY:

Nervous-looking lead and supporting actor of the American stage and films. He won an Oscar as best supporting actor for his performance in The Deer Hunter (1978). Seen in mostly supporting roles throughout the 80s and early 90s, often portraying psychologically unstable characters.


TRIVIA:
  • His performance as Nick Chevotarevich in _The Deer Hunter (1978)_ (qv) is ranked #88 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time (2006).
  • In order to achieve the gaunt, withdrawn and hollow look of his character in _The Deer Hunter (1978)_ (qv), it's reported that he ate a diet consisting of only rice and bananas in preparation for this film.
  • Was 'George Lucas (I)' (qv)' second choice for the role of Han Solo in _Star Wars (1977)_ (qv).
  • Ranked #1 on Tropopkin's Top 25 Most Intriguing People [Issue #100]
  • Is only the second person in history to be nominated for both Best Supporting Actor from the Oscars, for _Catch Me If You Can (2002)_ (qv), and Worst Supporting Actor from the Razzies, for _The Country Bears (2002)_ (qv) in the same year. The first was 'James Coco' (qv), who was actually nominated for both awards for the same role in _Only When I Laugh (1981)_ (qv).
  • When he did the Russian roulette scene in _The Deer Hunter (1978)_ (qv), he was remembering being sent to summer camp by his parents, which he hated. He felt betrayed, ostracized, alone - which he felt the character was experiencing at that point in the film.
  • Attended the Professional Children's School.
  • Has different-colored eyes (one blue and one hazel). This is a condition known as heterochromia.
