Personal Quote:

I've been asked, 'What was your big break?' I don't feel like I've had a big break. It's been a slow, slow break. I want my career to grow gradually. There's still so much for me to learn. I'm just trying to take these opportunities to get better at what I'm doing. See more »

Trivia:

One of his first big acting jobs was in a Levi's commercial where he had to allow himself to be thrown from a mechanical bull, even though he had grown up in Texas simulating just this kind of bull-riding with friends--practicing on ''barrels that you tied to four trees with springs on them. A guy would get on each rope and rock the barrel back and forth...'. See more »

Trademark:

Portraying colorful and individualistic young men with a slightly rebellious edge.

Nickname:

Scooter
