Grew a mustache to play the part of "Chief Swan" in Twilight (2008/I). When filming was completed, he shaved it off.


His daughter's name is Bluesy LaRue Burke.


(2012, on Jane Austen's Mafia!) Yeah! That was my first studio picture. It was two tons of fun. Great cast: Jay Mohr, Christina Applegate, the late Lloyd Bridges... one of his last movies, as a matter of fact. Yeah, just that silly, fall-down, slap-in-the-face, really great comedy that I never get the chance to do anymore, actually. But it was good times.


(2012, on getting into acting) I had known that I'd wanted to be an actor from a very early age, but I had always known that I wanted to have a dual career. I wanted to be an actor, and I also at that time wanted to be a rock star. And I went down the rock-star path first, and... that had its successes, but it didn't actually turn into rock stardom. But while I was doing that-this was up in Seattle, during the pre-grunge years-I met a woman who was producing an independent film, and she asked me to come and read for it. I did, and I got that part. And then she ended up doing another movie, and I got a part in that. Then I kind of did the thing that all the kids do: I moved to L.A. and just... I was doing music at the time, I had a demo deal with Warner Bros. that didn't pan out in the end, but I decided that while I was down here I'd just try and read for everything that I possibly could, and I started working as an actor in a timely fashion. And I've had a good 21 years so far.
