* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: However many scumbags he plays, it's hard to find a bad word said about him by anyone who's worked with him. He's frequently talked about in glowing terms on movie commentaries (Creator/KevinCostner is particularly nice about him in the ''Film/OpenRange'' commentary). This is supported by reports from fans who've met him at cons, appearances, and in the street. He has a good-natured and accessible Twitter habit, and works tirelessly in support of a number of charities, including his annual fundraiser ''Hogs for Hearts''.
