* MethodActing: One of the best examples--his character Roy Walker in ''Film/TheFall'' was bedridden and possibly paralyzed. He pretended to be a paraplegic and answered to the name "Roy" for the first 12 weeks of filming so his six-year-old fellow costar Catinca Untaru would act believably. Almost everyone on set thought he had lost the use of his legs in an accident, which the director encouraged. A lot of people were ticked when they found out the truth. A make-up artist apparently fainted with shock when she saw him standing up.
* PlayingGertrude:
** Two years ''younger'' than Orlando Bloom, despite playing his father. Of course Elves are immortal and eternally youthful so it's not quite glaring.
** He was also roughly twelve years younger than Fernando Wood is supposed to be when ''{{Film/Lincoln}}'' takes place.
