Personal Quote:

[re his character in Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus (2013)] Even the nicest people in the world know what it's like to be selfish, even if they don't act on it. Everyone has access to those impulses. He's both fixated and miserable. He's a person who is so uncomfortable with himself that he can't be in the present moment for even a second. See more »


Was ranked #1 on Entertainment Weekly's '30 Under 30' the actors list (2008). See more »


Often plays soft-spoken, sensitive characters See more »
