- His first job in Hollywood was as a receptionist for Family Guy.
- He is an accomplished piano player who has won several awards, including first place at the DeBose National Piano Competition, and played at Carnegie Hall at the age of 12.
- On the character he portrays: "It’s loosely based on me but the more I play John LaMarr and really step into his shoes, the more I find things that are very different for John and myself. He’s outspoken and funny, but John can be very cerebral at times and a quiet observer."
