QUOTES: There arent many actors in Canada these days who are as intense, versatile and blessed with a wonderful sexy-ugly 70s-style screen presence as the criminally underused Robert Nolan. In another time and place, Nolan would have been a bonafide star - not in the pretty boy mould, but rather in the chiseled and alternately tough and sensitive manner of a Gene Hackman, a Ron Leibman or even a Harvey Keitel. Hes got leading man sensibilities, but the kind that would lead to what I like to think of as starring character roles. And yes, hes got the stuff, obviously, to be a great character actor in supporting roles, but hes proven thus far to be so goddamn good, I want to see as much of the guy onscreen as possible.” - - (Greg Klymkiw, Film Corner) Robert Nolan has great comedy chops.
