Personal Quote:

In college I stopped eating red meat on a bet with my girlfriend at the time. She bet she could stop smoking, and I bet that I could stop eating red meat. She started smoking again, so I won, which I'm always proud of....I had been a vegetarian as a child for whatever reason. I guess kids sometimes follow their instincts...My friend dared me to go vegan as I was reading this book Fast Food Nation... See more »


In Donnie Darko (2001) his character Seth was Donnie's (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) high school nemesis. In real life Jake and Alex are very close friends. See more »
