At the beginning of every role I take, I have to start from basics and build it up. It's like a new construction.
There's still the part of me that wants to leap at every opportunity, but now there's the other side that says, 'Let's just wait a minute and see what happens.' That's intuition, and it comes with age and experience.
I'm a good businessman. I pay my bills. Growing up in a situation where everything counted helps.
I got to L.A., and they said I had to lose weight, let my hair grow and buy some dresses. I was nailing auditions with my readings, but they wouldn't hire me because I wasn't putting on the glam. It just didn't occur to me.
