Personal Quote:

(2009, GQ Magazine) There's more to life than being an actor in a Hollywood movie. I'm not going to adapt my life after that existence, where a lot of people do. And they get the publicist, and they get all that stuff, and it becomes them. I think it's a stupid way to live your life. A really dumb way to live your life. See more »

Trivia:

Attended North Carolina State University (did not graduate). See more »

Often plays strange, socially awkward characters. See more »
