The actor and comic (NBC's Community, E!'s The Soup, and the new comedy The Big Year) shares his thoughts on movies, travel, and why it pays to be nice.
Best Bowl of Soup
The clam chowder at Atlantic Fish in Boston. But I don't order soup that often. Maybe I should. I could go to a restaurant and say, "Hi, I'm the guy from The Soup, and I would love some! And it better be free."


Best Vacation
Siena, Italy, is the most beautiful place in the world. It's almost totally intact from the Middle Ages. I just love walking through the streets.

Best Gift
My wedding rings. My wife has had to buy me about four now because I keep losing them. I take them off to work out, or to play a character, and then they're gone. At this point, she's buying them by the gross.

Best Pick-Me-Up
I've been a coffee connoisseur since high school, when I worked at a drive-through espresso bar in Seattle. I like a short, dry double cappuccino, but this morning I had six espresso shots. I think I'm immune to caffeine. I might even have another.

Best Advice
Someone once told me, "Be nice to everybody." When someone's a jerk, everyone hears about it.

Best Movie Genre
Science fiction, like Dr. Strangelove and Blade Runner. But I love comedies, too. Annie Hall is one of my favorites, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a masterpiece.

Best Way to Spend a Sunday
Taking our kids to Sunday school, going to a farmers' market, and picking up meat from McCall's butcher shop. I barbecue a great marinated flank steak.

Best Excuse
"Oh, I'm so sorry, I was having major surgery."

Best Vice
Red wine and sports cars. Not at the same time, though.
