YOUR TROPES ARE MINE:

  • Cool Old Guy: As the titular character in Johnny Tsunami, and later as resident biologist Hiroki Watanabe in Lost in Space (2018).
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Has a delightfully deep and sonorous voice, which he uses to great effect in his villainous roles. His normal voice is actually a lot lighter, he just deepens it in his movie roles because of this trope.
  • Husky Russkie: Became a Russian citizen in 2016.
  • Large Ham: While he specializes in more quiet, reserved bad guys, he can ham it up with the best of them when necessary, and has the possibly-unique ability to be a quiet Large Ham.surfboard in Johnny Tsunami?
    • He also plays a Japanese Orthodox priest in Иерей-Сан (translated as Priest-San), he interestingly stated that this role was the closest to his real life personality.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Grew up as a christian and is now a Russian Orthodox Christian as of November 12, 2015 and was baptized under the name Panteleymon.
  • Role Reprisal: He returned his role as Shang Tsung in the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy 18 years after he last portrayed him. Later he would reprise the role again for Mortal Kombat 11, 24 years after he first took up the sorcerer's mantle.
