    This is a guy who would devote YEARS to a character, doing extensive research and interviews prior and who would stay in character during shooting. As LittleSally stated, this was incredibly taxing on him, and while it enabled him to deliver outstanding and award-worthy performances, I don't blame him for choosing to retire after almost 40 years of giving it his all.

    Of course I'll miss his acting in the future, but at least we have his excellent (if small) catalog of existing movies, several of which are in my Top 20 of all time.
    Is this still revelant?

    Never heard of him. Hell I don't even know most male porn stars even though that's about the only video I watch (other than my golden age idols like Ron Jeremy, Peter North, Randy West, etc).

    One of his best movies was "In the Name of the Father" were he played the part of Jerry Conlon, a victim of British injustice.

    He's a great actor and Gangs of New York was good but, the rest of his films were boring to me.
