Personal Quote:

[2010 quote on his career] I'm still in the guest-star mentality, where I'm just grateful. Like, on the Parks and Recreation (2009) set, I still feel like I'm a guest star. Being a fan of the show, it's really surreal to be on the set and see that it's not real, and getting to know the actors and they're not their characters. I'm still kind of in that mindset, most of the time. See more »


Is good friends with actor Paul Rudd. See more »
