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:

He traveled around the United States for a month in his personal Airsteam trailer promoting his movie Sahara (2005). See more »

Trademark:

His catchphrase "Alright, alright, alright!" See more »
