I’m all about being self-deprecating because I think it’s hilarious. Any actor who takes themselves seriously just needs to stop being such a piece of s**t.
Any skills that I have, I couldn’t really make money with them. I would like to think that maybe I would be doing something in psychology or something of that nature because I love that vein of medicine – the getting down and getting nitty – gritty.
My favorite subject was either English or History. I had a really awesome high school education.
My life is one that I’ve aimed for – I’ve always wanted to be an actor who worked in film and television and was able to provide for himself and his family. That was always a goal of mine. Now that I’m doing that, I think we have this idea, “Once that’s achieved, all complaints will leave and I will be happy and be filled!” And I didn’t have that.
I always was getting into trouble some way, because I was really good at lying when I was a kid. If I left my jacket at school for the third time and my mom was really angry at me, I would make up a lie and I would just really believe in it. This sounds a little bit sociopathic.
In all honesty, I have a few irons in the fire in the TV world, but mostly, I’m working on having the most amazing life I can possibly have, and hopefully my career will come along for the ride.
My mom is in the navy and my dad works for the army, but I never called them ‘sir’ or ‘ma’am’ or anything like that, and we never really moved around a lot because both my parents were stationed in D.C.
