Personal Quote:

[on 'The Dallas Buyers Club'] I really enjoyed working with Jean-Marc [Vallee]. He introduced me to Skype; I didn't know what Skype was.

Trivia:

Attended the University of Texas at Austin, College of Communication, where he majored in film, graduating 1993, with a Bachelor's degree in Radio-Television-Film. See more »
