Aawh, one of our best actors and very much liked here in Sweden. He is a true gentleman! Never any scandals or problems, just devoted to his work. Glad he is still filming at the ripe age of 82! :)

He was only 44 in that film? He looks late 50s in it. Just shows you that (some in) the population has by and large grown up when it comes to taking care of oneself, unlike out parents. Young people, take note. Party for 20 years, you'll pay physically and mentally.

I agree, I cannot believe he was 44! People do NOT look like that at 44 anymore, WOW!(Even people who don't age well!) I thought he was in his late to mid 60's when I stopped to see how old he was now, thinking he would be like 100+ lol.. WOW!

Oh wait nevermind, I just looked it up and some sources sited he was in makeup to make him look 30 years older. That would certainly make sense because there is no way in the world that man is 44. IMPOSSIBLE and that is why I checked it out, lol.

He looked older in the Exorcist than he did in Strange Brew.
