When asked who has been the biggest influence on his career, he says, "Mary Louise (Parker, his girlfriend and fellow actor) is a tremendous influence on me. She has incredible discipline. She takes the time day-to-day to watch people, to listen to people. To understand why people do things. And to me, a great actor is someone who`s incredibly compassionate. To me, that`s really it as far as an actor is concerned".
