- Icy Blue Eyes: Just take a good look at the picture.
- Large Ham: His approach to acting and theatre is...expressive, shall we say.
- Typecasting: It seems like he used to be the go-to guy whenever you needed a ruthless Russian villain in a movie. His background and looks helped quite a bit.
- Your Mime Makes It Real: His playwrighting and directing style is highly non-naturalist, and involves the almost complete absence of props. Consequently, while his characters speak, their actions are almost always mimed.
