Personal Quote:

There's that great quote from Beckett, I think, 'He had an abiding sense of melancholy that sustained him through brief periods of joy.' I like that, because I'm definitely an up-and-down person. See more »

Trivia:

Despite being grateful of his success as an actor, he still considers himself a writer at heart and wishes he devoted more time to that rather than acting. Due to a busy schedule as an actor, he sadly had to miss contributing to the script for Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), despite that he co-wrote Anderson's 3 previous films.
