ON PREPPING FOR THE ROLE I don't know how to play the piano, but my friend does, so I'd watch him and kind of copy it a little. Sometimes they cut to my hands and they're someone else's, but most of the time it's me.
ON HAVING A FAMOUS NAME Well, it leans both ways. People are excited to meet with me, and that helps, but then when you get into the meeting or audition, they expect you to be great. So it adds a little bit of pressure. But it makes things more interesting.
ON HIS MOVIE-STAR GRANDPA People my age really don't know Steve McQueen [who died in 1980], but from what I've been told and from the research I've done, I know he was a great actor, a cool guy, very down-to-earth. Sometimes when I watch his movies I'm like, "Whoa, that's cool. I'm related to that guy!"
