Personal Quote:

(2009, on making My Boyfriend's Back) That was directed by an old friend of mine, [Bob Balaban]. And that film was ruined by Disney. That was a great script. And he's a wonderful director.

Trivia:

In the early 1990s, Austin inspired the then doorman of his building, Shane Perez, to try his hand at writing. Perez took his advice and began tooling a drama which he hoped Pendleton would one day star in. That dream became a reality when his script for Men of Means (1999) was eventually purchased and produced. See more »
