Personal Quote:

[on modeling his title character in Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) persona] For the character I thought a lot about the comedy of resilience. Buster Keaton was someone that came to mind. He had quite an impassive face with a melancholic stare on it. All of these crazy things could be happening - he could be falling in love or a building could be falling on him, but it was all internalized. See more »

Trivia:

Is friends with fellow Juilliard alum Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain. See more »
