Personal Quote:

When I got this job on season 3 and people say to me, "So what are you doing? What are you doing now?" I say I'm doing this show True Blood (2008) they go, "Oh my God! That is my favorite show!" Without exception. Everyone. Even my doctor. Absolute craziness. They don't say, "That's my second favorite show" or "I quite like that show" or "I've heard of that show". See more »

Trivia:

His favorite actor is Daniel Day-Lewis. See more »
