On May 4, 2012, he was recognised as a Naperville Central Allumni.
Armstrong reportedly has been mistaken as one of the actors who portray cavemen in a popular series of commercials for the automobile insurance provider GEICO, due to his hairstyle and facial hair resembling the makeup used for the caveman characters. Armstrong noted this misconception in an interview with Entertainment Weekly stating, "For the record, I am not the GEICO caveman."
He is married to Ashley Crow, the actress who portrayed Sandra Bennet on Heroes.
