3He attended St. Paul's, a private Catholic school in Covington.

29In 2005, he bulked up, adding about 20 to 30 pounds of muscle to his slim frame, so he would be considered for more leading-man-type roles.
30Ironically, the first actor to be cast as one of the survivors in Lost (2004).
31Played varsity soccer and baseball.
32He doesn't like to talk about his modeling career because of the impressions people might get of him as being just another pretty face.

#Quote
1I'm from the gulf coast of Louisiana.
2I grew up as a country boy.
3As an actor, you always think that whatever job you have is going to be your last. In some way, shape or form, you think you're going to screw it up and you're never going to work again.
4I'm a good driver.
5Lack of time and money create really bad green practices.
6The film business creates a large amount of waste, and I'm not immune to waste in the business.
7I never had any backlash from the model-turned-actor thing.
8You spend enough time on set as an actor and it's great when a director was at some point an actor or understands acting. They're able to finesse performances out of you that a lot directors can't get.
9I want to bulk up. I'm a skinny guy.
10I aim to direct as much as I act at some point in time.
11I never wanted to be one of those actors with a political agenda.
12I've never been on a TV show for more than a season and you have to continually keep it interesting and you have to keep it connected, even as you change.
13I'm from New Orleans. There's a lot of vampire mystique and mythology that resonates there, and I was fascinated by it. I always wanted to play one.
14There are certain places in the world that are kind of energy vortexes, which are phenomenal.
15No one knows what women want!
16I'm never running for office. I love being able to speak to members of Congress or members of the Senate and floating on either side, because it takes all of us. It's going to take both of them.
17I just want to make it clear that I have been working since I was ten years old.
18Maybe one of the only things I do well: I cook like a maniac! I would be a chef if I weren't an actor.
19The quality of life is so much higher anyplace you can ski in the morning and surf in the evening - there's something to be said for that.
20Species conversation is beyond a doubt an issue that truly matters to the American public.
21I don't ever want anything to come in the way of me truthfully telling a story.
22I don't know how to do anything else other than be an actor. If I wasn't in this, I would be in alternative energy and conservation.
23The most underused, under-appreciated group of people in the world is our youth.
24I've sorta learned that I'm so tired of taking myself so seriously. It's so great to show up at work and truly enjoy every word you say.
25I appreciate the response and the support of fans, of people who actually don't mind watching me on screen... I just don't ever want to jeopardize that.
26My great-grandchildren will not be able to enjoy the Gulf Coast of Louisiana the way I have.
27I don't want to see blood spewing out but I don't mind it in controlled environment. Does it make me squeamish? No.
28What we're doing to the planet is inexcusable.
29I mean, there are some amazing storytelling being done on the small screen right now. That's what so cool about being in television right now. Studios, networks are starting to throw more resources, better writers, more production values... and to be part of that is awesome.
30The coming together of like-minded individuals through action is what's needed to see wide spread change for us, our planet and its creatures.
31I'm not a negative person.
32It's so great to show up at work and truly enjoy every word you say.
33I work with the Humane Society a lot and have three rescue cats.
34A lot of things that happen in the world make me a bit crazy.
35I kind of think too much, I try to do many things at once.
36Acting is such a huge part of my life. It really allows me to have a creative outlet and to actually be able to have an outlet to discuss openly the things that truly I think are relevant in the world, that make a difference.
37They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. It's the same way with women... or at least the ones I want to be with.
38I don't care how hot a girl is - if she doesn't like animals, it would be a major, major problem.
39We're made up of energy, so who's to say you can't transmit through electrical means? If you could transmit yourself wirelessly, then it's Armageddon pretty much.
40Oceans are one of the most important things in the world now and that is a national security threat of the United States of America, to be honest with you. That is why seeing the habitat destroyed is so short-sighted by us.
41Every love story needs a catalyst of some sort.
42When you're really close to someone, they can make fun of you a lot and get away with it. But they sort of poke you in all of the right places.
43Before vampires were aesthetically appealing, they were physical anomalies and ostracized outsiders whom we banished to the dark, and they didn't have the appeal that they do now.
44Kids are meeting in coffee shops and basements figuring out what's unsustainable in their communities. That's the future.
45I have the attention span of a mosquito from multitasking and all the things that have affected my poor little brain.
46I can't let time move on without fighting tooth and nail and hopefully being a part of a revolution that is positive.
47I can write with absolutely perfect penmanship with my feet. If I broke both my arms, I could still write a girl a love letter using just my toes.
48Love is tested in so many ways. How do I articulate this? Two people are together. There are stakes, strife, struggles, all these things that make us fall for someone, love someone even more, leave someone.
49There are always decades that interest people. For me, that's the Roaring Twenties.
50I have a million acquaintances but just two or three true friends. I can't hide anything from them.
51[About his co-star, Maggie Grace] "She's hateable in Lost (2004), but really she's the sweetest, most adorable thing on the planet".
52You can't get anywhere without the people who have come into your life.
53This program teaches people that it only takes a single unlucky moment to lead to tragedy, if you come into contact with one really f***ed-up person, they can truly take your life away. [In regards to the Matthew Shepard killing and MTV's Fight for Your Rights: Take a Stand Against Discrimination campaign]
54I kind of think too much, I try do too many things at once. [on his biggest weakness]
55I have a million acquaintances but just two or three true friends. I can't hide anything from them.
56[on his reasons for becoming an actor] "To explore different parts of yourself and different emotional lives....not to hide from who you are but to actually explore who you are".
