Personal Quote:

I was always the class clown and got kicked out of class at least once a day for just being a goofball. Not suspended or anything, just sit outside and look at the tree on the bench. I got benched a lot. You keep one foot on the bench and try to get as far away as possible. See more »

Trivia:

Played a future superhero as a child (the child version of The Other Guy in Blankman (1994)) and voiced a superhero as an adult (Wasabi in Big Hero 6 (2014)) in two films twenty years apart. See more »
