is stunned he has carved a successful film career by starring in comedies because he was serious during high school. The actor has starred in a string of comedies, including Wedding Crashers
, The Royal Tenenbaums
and Shanghai Noon
, and admits he is often cast in the 'stupid' role.
He tells the New York Daily News
, "It's kind of funny that I ended up working in a lot of these comedies. I wasn't the class clown in school. I didn't come from a stand-up background. It puts me on edge, that kind of machine gun (style), always looking for jokes. I haven't played too many businessmen, like grown ups with children."
