    But it's one of those things, he's got the face that matches up with the base for all of those characters. If someone were to tell me he's an actor that's had lots of famous roles, but you never see his face i'd have a damn good idea of what characters they were.

    So he is making bank for acting in front of millions of people, and he doesnt get the curse of paparazi. Sounds like the best possible acting job from pov of certain long time celebreties.
