Having already cut his teeth on such TV shows as Supernatural and Showtime’s Masters of Horror, the young thespian also played opposite Oscar winners Benicio Del Toro and Halle Berry in Things We Lost in the Fire. But it’s his most recent feature film projects that have really generated a lot of buzz and interest.

DVD File recently got an exclusive chance to chat with Quinn about his experiences of working with Joe Dante and Terry Gilliam, and why he loves horror movies.
