Personal Quote:

[on Jeff Lipsky's movies] The characters are all so odd, like the films are odd. There's a fascination with human behavior you don't get to see very often, and as an actor you don't get to play very often. He loves to explore the darker side of the human psyche in a wonderfully unexpected way.

Trivia:

Won the Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play Tony Award for "The Humans" on June 12, 2016. See more »
