Personal Quote:

{On doing The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)] It's nice to play a guy who is kind of a bottom-feeder. He's not about morals or ethics; he's about getting people off and getting it done any way he can. So he's pretty-street-smart, compared to my A Time to Kill (1996) guy. See more »

Trivia:

Is a big fan of English rock band, The Cult. On 17 March 2012, at one of The Cult's performances in Austin, Texas, he even went onstage and played bongo drums with them during two songs. See more »
