I spent a lot of time with the LAPD. I spent six weeks training, weapons training, ride-alongs, surveillance, interviewing them, in all different departments and divisions.
I love 'I Love Lucy,' and I have the DVD set of 'I Love Lucy.'
Westerns are cool, man. I'm big on Westerns. I just love the grittiness.
I interned for the Knicks for one year doing community relations, but I absolutely hated it. It was a desk job, and the team was not good at all, and I didn't realize how much that correlated to the office. It was just gray, gloomy days.
The camera never lies, man. I've learned that. If you allow it, it will see right through you, which is kind of cool.
My first celebrity crush… I had a huge crush on 'Cheetara' from 'ThunderCats.'
A friend told me about a Nike competition, where they give you one minute to do tricks with a basketball. I wasn't going to go, but they were giving away free sneakers. I ended up coming in second place.
