Christopher McCulloch
In the film world, and I know this from just talking to other people, that I’m known as a kind of dramatic, serious, almost humorless actor, and the fact is I’m a funny guy, and I spend most of my life trying to find a lighter side of things and on stage was given plenty of opportunity to do that.
