After some work in films such as Yentl and Ragtime, he returned to Broadway, playing Georges Seurat in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Sunday in the Park with George. Once again proving his versatility, he went on to star as Inigo Montoya in the 1987 classic comedy film The Princess Bride ("My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.").
