Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

You know, people want someone to tell them the answer. They want a friend, or a teacher, or a parent, but above all I guess they just want to know. And the truth is you can't tell them, and that's a hard thing to deal with. And it's easy to get wrapped up in the idea that this person knows, that he will tell me what I need to know, what I need to live, because he means a lot to me. See more »

Trivia:

He moved to New York City from West Orange, New Jersey, when he was 16 with two cents, a ball of lint, and no place to stay. He got a job as a bike messenger. He studied for a while at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He was cast as Henry in Dawson's Creek (1998) after someone from the series saw him in the play, "The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek" at New York Theatre Workshop. See more »

Trademark:

Often plays characters that are twisted or troubled. For example, Paul in Funny Games (2007), Blake in Last Days (2005) and James in Boardwalk Empire (2010).
