Personal Quote:

I grew up in the public eye. I can't hide from that. I always embrace the work I've done before. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for those movies. I'm always baffled by actors who are like "I'm not going to talk about the '80s." What? You're just forgetting that whole experience? I feel very fortunate to have been able to do those films. It gave me the tools I needed to be where I am. See more »


His favorite character he ever played was Bill Gates in Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999). He thought this was fun playing the richest man in the world. See more »
