My wife, Brittany, and I moved from L.A. to Brooklyn because FBI: Most Wanted shoots in and around New York City. One thing that's cool about living here is how close the cities are on the East Coast. We drove to Philadelphia. I sent Sylvester Stallone a picture and video of myself doing the stairs from Rocky. The other weekend we went up to Stowe, Vermont, to watch the leaves change. Next up: Washington, D.C., so Brittany can visit the monuments.

2. CHILL TIME

When I get home from work, I hang out with Brittany, hang out with my dog, then I space out for an hour playing The Legend of Zelda video game nonstop.

3. PUPPY LOVE

I like working with my Australian Shepherd because she's so smart. We do Zoom Room, the agility dog-training gym. She'll go through tunnels and jump through tires. She makes me such a proud dad.

4. ICELAND

Brittany and I went in the summertime, when the sun never fully sets. We stayed at the Buubble hotel; our room was literally a giant bubble. So the sun wasn't setting, it started to rain, and we were wide awake at 4 a.m., drinking hot cocoa and just laughing. It was surreal—and one of my favorite trips.

5. A POP-UP GYM

I go to the F45 gym—it's a great mix of cardio and weights. And (FBI: Most Wanted co-stars) Julian McMahon, Roxy Sternberg, and I created a little gym inside our TV studio in Greenpoint. Now we have so many people on set working out; we're up to doing 100 push-ups a day!

6. FAST FOOD RUNS

When we lived in Venice Beach, California, we were super close to an In-N-Out Burger. We're missing it. It's our two-year wedding anniversary, and I had the idea of, "Hey, let's fly to the closest In-N-Out," which is in Dallas! We love doing random things like that: Take a four-hour flight, get the In-N-Out, and then fly back. No luggage needed.

7. MY LIFE MANTRA

It's on the bottom of my email: "If you don't learn to be happy where you're at, you'll never get to where you want to be." You can choose to be miserable trying to reach your goals or you can enjoy the journey.
