The New York Times described him as "perhaps the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation" and they were right. His incredibly versatile talent made him the most memorable part of every show, film or stage performance he was in.
Rolling Stone's David Fear said, "No modern actor was better at making you feel sympathy for fucking idiots, failures, degenerates, sad sacks and hangdogs dealt a bum hand by life, even as - no, especially when - he played them with all of their worst qualities front and center." He added, "He was a transformative performer who worked from the inside out, blessed with an emotional transparency that could be overwhelming, invigorating, compelling, devastating."
