Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Dark, exotic leading man with broad stage experience who never fared as well on film; neither his looks, nor his aloof demeanor, were suited to conventional leading-man roles, though he did star in the 1979 production of Dracula (A part he played to perfection on stage, in Dangerous Liaisons went on film to John Malkovich instead.) He has found more opportunity in recent years as a character actor, particularly in villainous parts. He debuted on-screen with a juicy role as Carrie Snodgress' lover in Diary of a Mad Housewife and followed that with The Twelve Chairs (both 1970), The Wrath of God (1972), The Mark of Zorro (1974, playing the title role in this made-for-TV movie), Those Lips, Those Eyes (1980, very entertaining as a down-on-his-luck actor romancing local lasses in a small town), Sphinx (1981), The Men's Club (1986), Masters of the Universe, And God Created Woman (both 1987), True Identity (1991), and 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992). Even when Hollywood offered a perfect part, as Dracula, he was forced to subvert the lusty, tongue-in-cheek characterization that had won him such acclaim on Broadway, in favor of a more serious (and conventional) approach. In 1993 he snared two plum supporting roles, as Madonna's humiliated former lover in Body of Evidence and as the power-hungry Chief of Staff in the White House comedy Dave He appeared next in Brainscan (1993), Bad Company and Cutthroat Island (both 1995).
