He has German, Irish, English, and more distant Dutch, ancestry. Fichtner, Fiechtner, or any variant thereof is a surname originating from areas where German is spoken (Switzerland, Austria, Germany). Descendants of the Fichtner name are spread though Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, the United States and even into modern-day Ukraine. Groups of Fichtners helped to colonize the early United States, with the emergence of Fichtners into Pennsylvania in the mid-1760s. Fichtners also settled in the Russian Empire as Catherine the Great opened up Russian lands to German settlement during the same period. The name is common especially in modern southern Germany. Fichtners also remain today living in the modern-day Ukraine and many live within the United States today in the Midwest and Northwest.

When you work on a Jerry Bruckheimer film, you can be sure of two things: no production value will be spared, and the catering will be as fine as any really really good restaurant. Jerry is an amazing producer, with a commitment to his films second to none.
I have no problem having any actor from anywhere play a role. I'm excited for any actor that gets a job, I truly am. Even if it's a role that I'm up for and I don't get it, I never begrudge any actor having it work out for them.
When I was younger, I never wanted to rehearse because I thought that someone would figure out I don't know what I'm doing. Now I like to really spend the time and figure it out, and rehearsal is to try something that doesn't work.
It's not that there aren't people who care creatively in the world of television, but there's always a bit more time in making a movie. I always feel films are more of a creative journey.
Here's the bottom line: I can't play someone if I can't figure out what he cares about. Everybody cares about something, even a rough character. It defines where we step in life. As soon as you find out what somebody cares about, then it all gets real.
What I truly get excited about is not the genre of a movie or the size of a part - it's character. I like to find characters.
