I did my undergrad at Florida State, got a Bachelor's, and then I got my Masters in Acting at NYU. So I've spent a lot of time in the classroom.
I read a lot of W.E.B. Du Bois, who wrote 'The Souls of Black Folk.'
I've lost friends over texting because I'm so bad at it.
I do enjoy history. That's one of the things that I love about acting is you get a chance to really dive into history and develop a real personal opinion about it.
I've written a couple of scripts. Actually, a pilot. I'm not sure I'm allowed to say, but it's a comedy about three young men in New York City, one of whom may or may not be a romantic like me.
I need to find those projects more often: the ones that really, really speak to me. I do better work in those situations and have a better time.
Theater is where I have the most experience and feel most at home, but I'm really, really loving film.
A lot of people in the movie business don't have a point of reference for me; nobody really knows who I am.
I started out doing a lot of theater, a lot of Shakespeare, classic plays.
I studied acting in NYU's graduate program, in which we covered everything from Ibsen and Chekov to August Wilson and David Mamet.
I think that a man should not be shy; you should say what you really think and feel - put it out there.
I'm the old-school, letter-writing romantic. I know it's out of style, and not a lot of women go for that these days, but that's what I go for.
If someone wanted to do a biopic about me, I would like for them to consult my family.
It's not every day you get to be in a movie about Jackie Robinson, so you want to do it as right as you can.
Never lived in L.A. I've always done the New York thing.
