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 his role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) I barely remember that, except for the fact that it was one of my very first gigs. I remember being in makeup for four and a half or five hours, and then to take off the makeup it was another three or four in makeup, because you have to go through the whole process. It was very brief. One scene, maybe a scene and a half. It was basically a walk-on role. But it was very... it was a style that I was completely not used to as an actor. It was very Shakespearean, that show. But I did the best I could.


(2012, on landing Revolution) I was in Las Vegas, being a danger to myself. I got a call from my manager. She said, "Jon Favreau and Eric Kripke would like to meet you. They're doing a show. It's also produced by J.J. Abrams." I said, "What time do I gotta be there?" I flew back immediately, we met on a weekend, and they sort of just pitched me the show, what it was and what it was about. And given that and the pedigree that it came with, I said, "What do I gotta do? I'm in." And that's where it went from there. It's been nothing but joy ever since.
