Added DiffLines:

* DyeingForYourArt: Quite often, the most prominent example in ''X2''. He had his limits, apparently; even in the behind-the-scenes footage, he stated he couldn't go through the makeup process again for the next film. This trope was the main reason he did not reprise the role for ''The Last Stand''.
* FakeNationality: Constantly. As a Scotsman he's played an American, a Brit (an American pretending to be a Brit), a German and a Russian just to name a few.
