The actor’s career continues to flourish recently. As he becomes more prolific as a performer, it also becomes a challenge for him to practice a regular workout routine. Still, he makes great efforts to make sure that he lives an active lifestyle. “I try to work out every day. Estelle Parsons, who at eighty-seven-years-old can run circles around me, told me that you have to exercise like it’s brushing your teeth – just something you do every day,” said the actor. “I do a lot of running, yoga, and am really into Barry’s Bootcamp. Boxing is next on my list. And a hip-hop dance class. Constantly switching up workouts is important for me so that I don’t get bored,” he added.
