Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I don't have a pet but I dream of someday getting a pug dog whom I will name Croque Monsieur so that I may alternate between calling him Croque, Monsieur or his full name: Croque Monsieur. I'll more than likely only use his first and last name most often when he's been bad.


Won a Tony Award in 2007 for his portrayal of Moritz in "Spring Awakening". See more »
