I mean, to me he was like a rock star, you know, he had it all: he had the looks, he had a great name, he had an attitude, an energy, an excitement about him.

Sempre nel 2012 interpreta Adam Ewing il notaio avventuriero del capolavoro Cloud Atlas dei fratelli Lana e Andy Wachowski. È stato fidanzato dal 2003 al 2012 con la musicista Mickey O'Brien.
