BIGGEST INDULGENCE

Video games. Gears of War and Rainbow Six. Some I play alone, but most of the time I play with my friend Scott. I go over to his house and we play video games and drink red wine.

TRAVEL MUST

Ear plugs. The wax ones work best, or noise-canceling headphones. Or I do both, and then I can sleep.

DYING TO MEET

I'd love to meet John Cleese. You could kill me after that. He is such a terrific guy. Or Bill Murray or Robert De Niro.

PREFERRED EXERCISE

Before I was a dad, I was a marathon runner. Now I try to do yoga with my wife. But what I really like is basketball. I'm in an entertainment league.

NICKNAME REVEAL

My brothers called me Joel-the-Pole-the-Big-Fat-Mole.

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT

That's easy—Siena, Italy. I was born in Rome. We lived there because of my father's business and I love it there. My favorite place is the Duomo di Siena [below]. It's an amazing example of medieval architecture.
