He plays the trumpet and saxophone.

Although he often plays thuggish or brute characters, he is actually somewhat of a pacifist off-stage; he had reservations about continuing his production contract as Tony in "Sopranos, The" (1999) due to the show's violent content and stereotype of Italian-Americans.

Used to bartend in Manhattan during years as struggling actor.
