Personal Quote:

I'm not a city kind of guy. I'm happiest when I'm tromping through the woods. That's why I don't live in Los Angeles. Being physically away from Hollywood probably loses me a few jobs, but the best ones seek me out. See more »


He was raised mainly in Chicago, Illinois and partially in Dublin, Ireland and his parents' home county of Offaly. See more »
