#Quote
1 I love the instant gratification of playing live...the energy. And rock star parties are better than actor parties.
2 [Explaining how he became an actor, 2005]: "I was five, and my dad kind of said, 'Hey, you wanna be an actor?' and I said, 'Sure,' that kind of thing, you know? I was kind of put into it by my dad but, you know, good. I really love it, and I still do it."
