As a child, one of my defense mechanisms was to try to be funny. My mom tried to nurture that by putting me in acting class. But I got bored when we stopped pretending to be trees and actually had to work.
I met my wife, Nia Vardalos, at The Second City, and she was chomping at the bit to move to L.A.

Scott Foley was always fun because he's a very funny guy. So I liked working with him a bunch.
