* TypeCasting: Averted by the sheer volume of different roles he has played. Though starting somewhere post-2000, he started playing a lot of eccentric, quirky mentors/father figures, as seen in films like ''Film/FindingNeverland'', ''Film/IHeartHuckabees'', ''Film/BarneysVersion'', ''Film/StrangerThanFiction'', ''Film/MeetTheFockers'', and ''Film/MrMagoriumsWonderEmporium''. Subverted with ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', where he's less of a CloudCuckooLander and more stern and bemused by his bombastic pupil.

For one thing, when he first tried getting work, it was a 10 year struggle in the New York theater scene considering he was as un-movie star-like as you can get: short, big nosed and Jewish with the air of a shy introvert. However, perceptive directors like Mike Nichols realized what he could do; for example, in ''Film/TheGraduate'' in 1967, he took the world by storm with a powerful sincerity in his performance which took MethodActing to its height. Furthermore, he is credited for expanding the possibilities for different ethnicities to reach Hollywood stardom during the NewHollywood era as an actor who defied the stereotypes to hit it big his way.
