Personal Quote:

I don't think I ever will do a sex scene because of my religion and my personal standards. Coming into this business has opened up many doors where I'm constantly making a decision on each project. I'll never do a sex scene where you see a man and a woman lie on the bed and the camera is still there with the naked actors in your face. I won't show the act of it on screen. See more »

Trivia:

He is heavily into 1970s clothes, music, etc. See more »

Trademark:

Known for playing Napoleon Dynamite.

Star Sign:

Scorpio
