Personal Quotes (2)

I had to clean up my look [for the role on "The Mountain"]. Usually I have more of a beard. I'm a guy's guy. I don't like to tinker in front of a mirror in the morning. Shaving is not my thing.
I didn't come here (America) to be in the entertainment business. In fact, when people told me I should try acting, the rebel in me wanted nothing to do with it.
