Personal Quote:

I was a horrible athlete. My parents are athletes; they tried me to get me to do that, but I just couldn't. I sucked. First I wanted to be a scientist, and I set our bathroom on fire. Then I wanted to be a basketball player and I'm a not-very-tall white, Russian Jewish kid. So that didn't work out either. See more »

Trivia:

His parents were both well-known figure skaters in the Soviet Union, considered national celebrities as stars of the Leningrad Ice Ballet for 15 years. The two qualified for the 1972 Winter Olympics, but were not permitted to participate by the Soviet authorities. Anton had said, "I don't exactly know what that was - because they were Jewish or because the KGB didn't want them to travel.". See more »
