For me, it was more a dramatic shift to go from the stage to the screen.
I certainly know there are people in positions of power in the business who lack imagination and, perhaps as a result of that, think of me as ‘David’. But I wouldn’t really want to work with those people, you know?
I don’t think closeted homosexual morticians have the market cornered on self-loathing or sense of shame.
I like to think I am well-mannered. If I have the option at a breakfast place, I’ll go with the grits. That’s how Southern I am.

So it’s really nice after about a year and a half to get back on stage and flex those old muscles.
Ultimately, I’m a mess. I don’t mean I’m a mess, like, emotionally – I mean, I think probably everybody’s a mess. David’s a mess. But. I’m talking about… I’m messy.
Yes, I mean, There’s nothing like it. There is an added sense of pressure because of that, but there’s also nothing like the thrill you get being in the same space with that audience right there and then. And when you do it, it’s over.
