's approach to Gigolo Joe was the perfect middle ground, compared to Kubrick's far darker original vision. The character was originally much more aggressive, sinister, and far from Spielberg's revised conception as an innocent who's abused.

He has two roles in common with Michael Caine
: (1) Caine played Alfie Elkins in Alfie
(1966) while Law played him in Alfie
(2004) and (2) Caine played Milo Tindle in Sleuth
(1972) while Law played him in Sleuth
(2007), in which Caine played Andrew Wyke.
Often plays a representative of the ideal man (Gattaca, The Talented Mr. Ripley, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence)
