Where will you buy your coffee this week?

I'll just go to my local, which is Kawa (Crown Street, Surry Hills). I buy takeaway coffee from Zanetti (Ramsay Street, Haberfield), which is on the trip from my house to Haberfield where we're shooting The Alice.

Where will you go shopping this week?

If I'm after some amazing clothes, I'll go to Belinda Menswear (William Street, Paddington).

Where will you have dinner?

I have a sentimental attachment to the Balkan (Oxford Street, Darlinghurst). I was born and raised in Darlinghurst and my parents used to take me there when I was a kid and I'd happily polish off a mixed grill, aged seven. I recently had my two nieces over to my place and I took them up there in their pyjamas for a dinner, just like old times.

What will you do on Friday night?

Usually I'll have a beer with the crew on the set of The Alice in Homebush after we wrap for the day.

Where will you exercise this week?

At City Gym (Crown Street, East Sydney). My dad first took me there when I was 15 and I've been going on and off ever since. These days, I'm usually arguing about the Roosters versus the Bulldogs with my personal trainer, David Driscoll. I'm a diehard Roosters supporter and he follows the Bulldogs.

How will you relax this week?

I bought a warehouse in Surry Hills and renovated it, creating my dream kitchen which I don't get to use often enough. I love having friends over for dinner, or otherwise just sitting in front of the plasma.

Where will you get a haircut?

I am a loyal customer of Valonz (Elizabeth Street, Paddington).

Where will you take a visitor to Sydney?

I would take them to my friend Stuart Campbell's place for dinner. He is a photographer and one of the most entertaining, eccentric people I know.

Where will you get the best view of Sydney?

I lived in Bondi for five years and the cliff walk to Tamarama has fantastic views. I also love the view of the city from Watson's Bay.

The Alice premieres on Channel Nine next week.
