I love music. Music is the soundtrack to the crappy movie that is my life
A man is basically as faithful as his options
I like the tradition of the Oscars. I like that some of the greatest comedians ever have hosted the show
I'm never proper or careful, but I never curse in front of my mother, either
I'm a nerd. I'm a little guy... the last guy you'd expect in a romantic movie
