"She's awesome. We did get to spend some quality time that we don't normally share. It's really, really nice," Mark gushed about his daughter. "She loves Los Angeles. She wants to figure out a way to live here permanently. There's UCLA or USC. [I told her] in a few years, come out and do that. My oldest son is interning at a production company throughout the week so they're pretty busy."

Bicoastal living with his wife has also been surprisingly painless so far.

"It's easy. The kids are older now," Mark explained. "There's no changing diapers. There's no midnight feedings. In the past, maybe we wouldn't take a job that's so far away, but now it's cool."
