Personal Quote:

I was driving around with homeless guys and people just out of prison, then I'd hit the streets and smoke all day.

Trivia:

Was discovered at an open cattle call for the film "Rent". A casting director spotted him and asked him to read for his film. Seven callbacks later, he was given the role but the movie was never made. See more »
