It was a clean Awards sweep - Emmy, Critics Choice, Golden Globe and SAG. To say this was, thus far, the role of his career, would be an understatement.

His career probably still has many years to go, but this role was certainly a perfect fit, coming at the right time in his life (he might look too old in just a few years). But aside from the age and shared ethnicity , it seems his acting skills were also a major necessary factor, as recognized by various groups of awards voters who know a thing or two about these things.

Perhaps his next venture will be another personal milestone, voicing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in an animated movie due this Spring.

I believe he showed himself to be a fan of TMNT in the past.
