Whatever happens tomorrow, you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are. Not a perfect soldier, but a good man.

my favorite activity is pretending that i can sing
I remember the casting session that I had where I was a break dancer, having this punk hair cut. They rejected me and I became really disillusioned with the business and said well this is what it’s all about, and I haven’t even got in to read a line. He said don’t worry, some day we’re going to get you back into this and it’s going to happen for you, which I kind of took to heart. It was one of those situations where I was lucky and fortunate enough to be at the right places at the right time. All of a sudden I was on the set of Growing Pains and got this audition for This Boy’s Life and was able to jump into the feature film world. It’s really been just simply the fact that I’d been able to work, you know what I mean? I would probably still be trying to be an actor even if I was out of work, but I would probably become a little disillusioned at some point and move on to other things. But acting is the one thing that I know I love.
