Every job leads to the next open door, hopefully, ... The good thing `The Station Agent` did, if anything, it allowed people to think outside the box about someone my size in what some people considered a leading-man role, which nobody had seen before. That`s not why I did it. I loved the part and the people involved.
  • Son of an elementary school music teacher and retired insurance salesman. Both parents are of normal height, as is older brother, John, a violinist.
  • Has achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism in which the body is perfectly formed but the bones initially modelled in cartilage, the long bones of the arms and legs, do not grow long enough. Velasquez painted a fine portrait of a man with this condition which hangs in the Prado in Madrid.
  • Is a vegetarian. Anytime you see him eating a meat product on screen, it is a tofu product (such as the tofu "beef" jerky, in The Station Agent (2003)).
  • November 2004 - engaged to theater director Erica Schmidt.
