    Richard has paid his dues. I think he is more than ready for bigger and better roles on the big screen. He is extremely talented and can handle any role since I think he has played them all. What’s wrong with these big time Hollywood people? Don’t they know talent when they see it? Don’t they see that he is more bankable than some of the other ex-pats who came to this country to act (no disrespect to them, just respect for Richard’s talent).
