Personal Quote:

I think it's only natural to be influenced by the filmmakers and things that you gravitate to when you were younger. I think my first seminal television moment was my grandmother forcing me, sobbing and screaming, to watch 'Dark Shadows'. She would make me sit through it to toughen me, I think. And when I was bad I had to watch 'The Waltons'. See more »

Trivia:

During high school he was president of a Meryl Streep fan club. See more »
