Personal Quote:

[on his ideal 2013 Emmys] I just watched the Louis C.K. special [Louis C.K. Oh My God (2013)]. If he doesn't win... He was just so brilliant. I'm also a huge Breaking Bad (2008) fan. They only had half a season, but even half a season of that is worth 10 of most other shows. Those guys and girls could easily throw a few more Emmys at them. See more »

Trivia:

Nominated for the 2018 Emmy Award in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category for his role as Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones (2011), but lost to Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones (2011). See more »
