Jason Isaacs (born June 6, 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.
