One of my favorite things about what I do for a living is that there is no certainty that, at any hour of any day, I could get a phone call that could change everything. Good or bad. I never know.
I was 11 or 12 years old when I first saw 'Reservoir Dogs.' I remember after I saw that film, I kept renting it from the video store because I wanted all of my friends to see it.
I've had projects before where everyone says 'This is going to be the big thing,' and it doesn't really turn out to be. Then there is a little project you do and forget about, and then it comes out, and it's huge.
I was a stand-up comedian for 10 years, if you can believe it. And I gave it up at age 22.
I really enjoy doing films, but I also love television. I certainly would not be against doing some regular television work and being on a show that runs several years.
I did stand-up for a good number of years while I was still living in New York, and those people primarily knew me as 'the kid stand-up.'
