Actor. Narrator in "The Armenian Genocide" documentary.

Readers Digest of Canada (Oct. 2006) asked him what struck a chord with him in the documentary and made him want to do it for free. He responded: "My manager is Armenian, and she brought the Genocide to my attention. Probably, like most of the world, I hadn't even heard about it. The fact that in 1915, 1.5 million Armenians were slaughtered so brutally and nobody really knew about it is horrific to me. And look at the state the world is in today. There's so much bloodshed. We can only learn from history. If you respect human life, you can wipe out half the problems of the world."
