Personal Quote:

(On this acting hero) Gene Wilder is my Marlon Brando. Gene Wilder will break your heart and make you laugh at the same time. And that's deep. There's something really profound about what he's able to do. It's transcendent. It's everything. He gives you everything at once and you have to decide what you feel about it. See more »

Trivia:

Has starred in four films specifically set in Los Angeles (Drive, Gangster Squad, The Nice Guys, and La La Land). Additionally, he has starred in seven films set in New York (The Believer, Stay, Half Nelson, Blue Valentine, All Good Things, Place Beyond the Pines, and The Big Short). See more »
