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 »


(March 26, 2011) Was in attendance at the wedding of Reese Witherspoon to Jim Toth. See more »
