His father, Nicholas Platt, is an ex ambassador to Pakistan, Zambia, & the Phillipines.
Was a Boston Red Sox fan, but is now a New York Mets fan because his son likes the team.
His great-great-grandmother Frances Ellen Work's fortune was based on a maternal pork-packing fortune created in Chillicothe, Ohio, and a paternal dry good and finance fortune created in New York City. Her father Frank's fortune was estimated at $15 million, and he served as stockbroker to Commodore Vanderbilt.

Personal Quotes
The only thing I wanted to do when I was a young naive kid was to become a New York stage actor. I thought that would be nirvana. I think of myself as an actor. If other people want to pigeonhole me, if they want to think of me as a big deal or a medium deal or a small deal, well, that's up to them.

[on filming The Three Musketeers] That was a really fun shoot. We were in Vienna and all over Europe in these glamorous locations, and you were getting to be in The Three Musketeers. Riding around on horses with pipes and going wenching-I got nothing bad to say.

[on his role in The Ice Harvest] That is one of my favorite characters that I've ever played in, of course, a typically completely under-watched movie. I was deeply in love with that character, this kind of lost, bumbling soul.

[on his role in Bulworth] That was a lot of fun. It was kind of a movie-making highlight for me, because Mr. Beatty invited me into his process in a very personal way. He was Warren Beatty, you know what I mean? I grew up watching his movies. It was a thrill. It was a lot of late nights and craziness, but I'm very glad to be in the movie. I love the role, and I love the movie.
