In 2003 he was hospitalized for 4 weeks because of a ruptured appendix, a very serious illness, fatal if not treated on time. He lost 45 pounds and surgeons had to take out 3 feet of his intestine among other things in order to save his life. That's the real reason behind his gaunt look in all his movies between 2003 and 2005. As of today he has fully recovered. He's currently working out with a trainer and he has already gained 12 pounds of muscles and his face has filled back. He's also following a strict protein and carbohydrate diet.
He tested for and was nearly cast as Marty McFly in Back to the Future (1985). The role was given to Eric Stoltz (who was later fired in the middle of filming) and then finally, Michael J. Fox.
Former son-in-law of Tommy Chong.
After winning the magic-performance Celeb-reality show "Celebracadabra" in 2008, he has reprised his show's character "Cherry" performing at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, Ca.
Born exactly one year after Jeffrey Wright; also shares his birthday with Eli Wallach, Ellen Burstyn, and the late Harry Chapin.
