I love that they are machines for putting thought on to paper.
I love how they look."

2. He’s a Man of Action (Rituals)
"When I am performing an action sequence when working on a film, I take on behavioral rituals — like tying the laces on a boot a certain way, or putting my right arm in first on a particular piece of costume."

3. He Has an Appreciation of Yellow

5. Arthur Miller Led Him to a Love of Acting
"I had the chance to play John Proctor in ‘The Crucible‘ my senior year of high school. That experience fortified and cemented my decision "to be an actor" in response to the question ‘what do you want to be?’ we were asked by life and educators."
