Barack Obama is crazy sexy.
I auditioned for ‘Jake in Progress,’ and I was nervous because I had a big crush on John Stamos. I was totally thrown off and couldn’t remember my lines.
I grew up near the University of Michigan, so we’d sneak into college parties. That’s where my acting started – lying about the professors I supposedly had and what I was studying.
I had my first apartment when I was 16. I got good grades, so my friends would be able to come over to ‘study.’ We’d party, and they’d cheat off me. Everybody won!
I was working at a restaurant in L.A. when a producer came in. He said I should audition for this movie ‘Cellular.’ I did, and I got the part. It actually makes me sick to tell that story because it’s obnoxious.
I’ve been in L.A., but I wasn’t acting. I didn’t know that I wanted to act, so I was in L.A. but working at a restaurant seven days a week and trying to figure out what I wanted to do and all that kind of stuff.
If I ideally can, I’d do a comedy, and then I would do something where I’m a mental patient, and then I’d go back and do a comedy so I can continue to express myself in different ways.
My very first job was something called ‘Nobody’s Watching,’ that Bill Lawrence who created ‘Scrubs,’ it was his pilot. It was my very first TV job, and it was a sitcom. Ever since that experience, I’ve been so itching to get back to that kind of environment and just to be involved with comedy.
When I did that ‘3 Days of Normal’ one, we had no budget, and we were all staying in a house in New Hampshire. There’s no trailers, and it’s just a family environment. There’s not much of a crew; you just do what you need to do.
