Then he appeared in the movie called “A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon”, but he was actually noticed after his role in the movie entitled “Second Chance” where he played Chazz Russel.

# Quote
1 I gravitate towards sort of broken characters who try to be better people.
2 [on his sports-based series ‘Go On’] Whenever I come across a famous athlete, I’m shameless. I’ll just ask them to be on the show. To my face they’ve all said yes so far.
3 When I did ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’ I would look over and see Aaron Sorkin pacing around in the corner of the stage, mumbling to himself. I thought, Well, he’s crazy. And then I realized what he was actually doing was playing out the next week’s scenes as he was writing them. And that was intriguing to me. So now I’ve become one of the people that mumbles in the corner of the room.
4 [on originating the show ‘Mr. Sunshine’] Some of it is based on me. I like to think I’m a little less selfish than this character, but at times in my life I certainly have been that way. I’ve been accused of not really paying attention to a sentence unless my name comes up in it twice.
5 I learned to fall down early in life – I was like six – because I realized it was a way to make girls laugh.
