Best Memory
He's gone now, so my most cherished memories are of my dad. He drove a New York Daily News delivery truck, and when I was about 15 or 16, sometimes I'd go out with him at 4 A.M. and we'd do the route together, just talking to each other like men. Those were great times.

Best Way to Work Up a Sweat
Whenever we go for a bike ride, my younger daughter makes me get the tandem bike so I can cart her around and do all the work. Pull a kid through Central Park in August, and you'll definitely sweat.

Best City
New York. Unlike in L.A., where everyone is trying to be in show business—you can meet a doctor and he'll be like, "I've got a script"—people in New York are proud to be doing the job they do. I grew up there, I still live nearby, and I'm in a movie this summer called 2 Days in New York. I just dig it.

Best Saturday Morning
I love hanging out with my kids, because they have a little extra bounce in their step. There's nothing like the joy of a child who doesn't have to go to school.

Best Advice
I used to have horrible cars, because I never had money, so I'd always end up broken down on the highway. When I stood there trying to flag someone down, nobody stopped. But when I pushed my own car, other drivers would get out and push with me. If you want help, help yourself—people like to see that.

Best-Kept Secret
For years I didn't miss an episode of Sex and the City. That's probably not something a guy should brag about.
