* DullSurprise: A common criticism of his acting. He really manages to make it work for him in ''Film/ManOfTaiChi'', where it makes his character come off as even more sociopathic.

Popularly believed to be dumb (most likely due to his [[Film/BillAndTed breakout role]] and shyness in interviews), he is actually ridiculously well-read and contemplative. He often talks about the philosophical meaning he sees in his characters, even the silly ones. He's also famous as an incredibly NiceGuy and purportedly one of the most normal, well-adjusted people in Hollywood. How far this is based on fact, only his friends can say, but one possible translation of his first name is "[[AwesomeMcCoolName The Coolness]]", so...

He's a good comic actor, and his turns in ''Film/TheGift'' and ''Film/TheWatcher'' (and now ''Film/ManOfTaiChi'') show that he has a little-utilized or recognized talent for playing very scary, creepy heavies. Despite this, Hollywood insists on casting him as LeadingMan ActionHero, contributing to his reputation for a limited range. He garnered considerable if not surprising acclaim for his role in the 2012 documentary film ''Side by Side''.
