Tropes associated with this actor:

  • Brooklyn Rage: He's originally from New York and is a green belt in kenpo karate. Scary combination.
  • Career Resurrection: After a long period of fading from headlining big Hollywood projects and a string of failed TV shows in the 00s, Mr. Robot was a critical and commercial smash, and earned him a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Series.
  • Dead Star Walking: In the film Mindhunters. Word of God is that he was killed off to make it seem like Anyone Can Die.
  • Genki Guy: In interviews he's very energetic.
  • Guttural Growler: His trademark.
  • One of Us: He is a massive Star Trek fan. So much so that his eyebrows are the way they are because he'd shaved them as a child to try and look like a Vulcan. His mother was involved in casting the TOS movies and gave him a cameo in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country as the junior officer who wakes Sulu. He also collects memorabilia.
  • One Steve Limit: Is no relation to Helen Slater, despite playing her brother in The Legend of Billie Jean.
  • Platonic Life Partners: Winona Ryder, whom he had a massive crush on while filming Heathers. Despite ending up with other people, they remained good friends ever since. He joked "she's still the woman of my dreams."
  • Throw It In: Claims he did a Jack Nicholson impression to play JD. That ended up becoming his trademark.
