He's not Jack Nicholson or Anthony Hopkins or Morgan Freeman or other older actors that still do popular stuff so I don't know why people are surprised I have no idea who he is lol.

Granted, I'm sure he's an amazing actor, I don't doubt that one bit. I just don't think him being added to the movie is a big deal to anyone under 35 or someone who isn't interested in or hasn't watched Classic movies.

All this being said I plan on getting around to the films of his that have been suggested on here before when I mentioned I didn't know him. Okie dokie bye!
I think if you asked 100 people age 22 or less if they've heard of the Sundance Film Festival, or The Natural, A River Runs Through It, The Horse Whisperer, Spy Game, Out of Africa, Ordinary People, or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, *all* of them are going to find *at least* one of his movies that click.
