1 HE CAN SING
The former Eastman School of Music student croons on his 2007 album Contemplations & Remembrances. He wrote his first song at 7 but says, "Classmates loved reminding me it was like 'If' by Bread."
2 HE'S A PRANK CALLER
He dialed Fringe's Anna Torv as Gilbert, a raspy-voiced old man asking for "Niecy." Says the actor, laughing: "She flipped out."
3 ROMAN HOLIDAY MADE HIM CRY
"It was poignant," he says of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck's bittersweet romantic classic.
4 EVERY WOMAN HAS A SHOT
"I love dark, light, tall, petite, Rubenesque and lean women," says the divorced dad of two. But ladies, you'll have to wait: Still raw from a recent breakup, he says he's "single but not available."
5 HE LOVES COMEDY
In the early '90s, he got his funny on performing with Yale School of Drama classmate Paul Giamatti (John Adams). Judd Apatow and Ben Stiller, take note: Reddick says, "I'm dying to do one!"
