The brooding star of The Hurt Locker gives up the goods on his final day.

The brooding star of The Hurt Locker gives up the goods on his final day.

Will you be going to heaven or hell?

I always joke about slinging drinks at a great bar in hell, but I’m really hoping for something else…with less clothing.

The soldier you play in The Hurt Locker ¿is indifferent to death. What would be your biggest worry in your last 24 hours?

Forgetting to say goodbye to my loved ones.

After your roles in S.W.A.T. and as a detective on The Unusuals, is there anyone you’d like to lock up?

Ignorant, inconsiderate douchebags. And, of course, Osama bin Laden.

In North Country you were Charlize Theron’s high school beau. Could you have happily died and gone to heaven if that were your last role?

Every moment of every day, I believe, is a good day to die, but a better day to live. So, yes.

Name one thing you’re glad you’ll never have to do again on Earth.


What’s your last meal?

A pound of raw chocolate chip cookie dough—dessert’s always first—then a rib eye and spicy tuna on crispy rice. Night, night.

Who did you always want to sleep with?

Wonder Woman, my first crush!

What’s the wildest thing you ever did?

Swimming with jellyfish in Iceland during the winter. Don’t ask why.

What are people saying over your casket?

Nothing, because they’re too busy spitting.

Got any last words?

It’s worth fighting for.
