Popular Finnish music group Don Johnson Big Band is named after him.

Les acteurs tĂ©lĂ© sont plus cĂ©lĂȘbres que les acteurs de cinĂ©ma aujourd'hui. Plus les gens vous voient, plus ils vous reconnaissent. Les salaires Ă  la tĂ©lĂ© rivalise de nos jours avec ceux du cinĂ©ma

Je peut faire ce que je veux, je suis riche, cĂ©lĂȘbre, et je suis plus important que toi (interview dans une Ă©mission de radio avec l'animateur Ron)

Je suis meilleur que De Niro et Pacino. J'ai le talent, mais ils ont les films
