A lot of people want the crown, but they're not willing to bleed for it.
Acting is what I dreamed about when I was doing those impressions as a kid. Even if I didn't know it yet.
I get passionate about certain subjects, and then I'll write a whole play around it.
I learned that if we set our mind to things, we can accomplish almost anything no matter what the circumstances are.
I never want to look back on any moment and say I could have done more. So I go all in.
I was a crazy guy in Hollywood back in the day, and then when I switched into theater, I got into work mode.
I was a rebellious kid, always getting into trouble.
I'm going to do everything I can, so that I don't look back and say I didn't do everything.
When I came out to Hollywood, I was a crazy young kid who didn't have a lot of direction.
I was born in Dallas; then I moved to Allen, Texas. But then I got sent to boarding school, where I started to get fascinated with actors like Al Pacino.
I went to The Miller School of Albemarle, just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. As a kid, I really loved the movie 'Toy Soldiers' starring Sean Astin and Lou Gossett Jr., and when I found out they filmed that movie at the Miller School, I was excited to go there.
In life, there are a lot of expectations. I see why in the South, especially, there's a simple existence. People, whether they're cowboys or farmers or ranchers, you just get up, you do your job, you have a family, you come home.
My friend Jim Parrack is in 'Child of God,' and we grew up together. Back then, we would watch old movies and go reenact them at a Blockbuster or a supermarket. We'd end up getting in trouble because you can't reenact movies. People think you're crazy.
The Sherry Theater, which I named after my mom, is a place I can go. I do want to give back to the community. There are so many people out there who want to be seen and heard, and get connected.
