AGE: 25

HOMETOWN: Nicholasville, Kentucky

ARRIVED IN LA: October 2007

PRIOR WORK EXPERIENCE: I was a mechanical-bull operator at a bar and a janitor at a middle school.

FIRST ACTING GIG: A viral video for True Blood for the site BloodCopy.com. It was done Blair Witch Project–style.

BIGGEST ROLE TO DATE: I was in Savages [2012]. I played a Laguna waiter.

FAVORITE MOVIE: Dumb and Dumber [1994]

ROLE MODELS: Woody Harrelson. But Johnny Depp is the reason I moved to Los Angeles—he’s from Kentucky, too.

MOST MEMORABLE AUDITION: It was for a video game commercial where they had me stand in a room and pretend that Hulk Hogan was flying through the walls. The casting director was screaming, “Bam!” and “Crash!” and “Boom!”

MOST DIFFICULT PART OF THE MOVIE BUSINESS: Waiting and waiting and waiting.

MOST HOLLYWOOD EXPERIENCE: I went to someone’s birthday party at Seth MacFarlane’s house. It was on my birthday as well. The whole backyard was a concert. The food there was insane. Everything about it was insane. Paris Hilton was even there.
