El actor de 23 años ha esta en la ultima portada de la revista Nylon... sale barbon porque se encuentra filmando Taking Woodstock que tiene fecha de estreno para el proximo año.
Sobre su primer papel en The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002): “I had no idea how to play the part. I didn’t understand the dialogue. I didn’t understand the character. But the casting director really believed in me. It’s funny because people now say, ‘That’s such a natural performance’, but in my mind that performance is the one most influenced by other actors.”
Sobre como escoge sus papeles: “I give a f—, but I don’t give that much of a f—. I’m still going to throw in some goofy s—. I don’t want to get too precious.”
Sobre la filmacion de Milk (2008): “I just had such a wonderful time. it’s such a great ensemble. Speed Racer was such a highly controlled performance environment that I found, honestly, a little frustrating at times just because it’s so hard when you’re on the green screen and it’s all about, ‘Bat this eyelash a little bit here.’ On Milk, it was just a free-for-all and we were all going nuts.”
