In 2007, Casey also starred as a troubled private investigator in his brother Ben's directing debut, Gone Baby Gone. "He did such a good job, I was really proud of him. It was nice to see him kind of blossom in this new way," Casey says.
Casey and his wife, Summer Phoenix, just had their second child in January 2008, and Casey says his family has always stood behind him. Casey's been quoted as saying his family would be supportive if he said he wanted to be a Martian, wear only banana skins, make love to ashtrays and eat tree bark! "It's certainly true," Casey says. "I think my family, they've always been very supportive and put up with all kinds of things. So if I was eating tree bark and making love to ashtrays, they might be okay with it."
