Jason Michael Isaacs (born 6 June 1963 in Liverpool, England) is one of the most deliciously, delectably, devilish British actors of the present day. He was born in 1963 in Liverpool to a Jewish family, and his family were harassed by ultranationalists during his youth. He often plays despicable characters, despite being a self-described "boring suburban man" in his personal life.
And no, hes not related to Timothy Dalton, despite their similar looks.
