He recently starred in the sitcom BENDERS (now available on Netflix), can be seen in Amazon’s SNEAKY PETE and the new season of HBO’s CRASHING, co-stars in the new Hulu dramedy THERE’S JOHNNY, and appears in the feature films FEAST OF THE SEVEN FISHES, THE FEMALE BRAIN and David Gordon Green’s HALLOWEEN reboot.
