Personal Quote:

I don't believe in the Stanislavsky "Method." I also don't believe you have to become a drunk to play one, or shoot yourself up to play a drug addict, or turn a trick to portray a prostitute. You don't even have to go out and kill someone to play a murderer. I believe that acting is a work of the imagination. I also believe in simplicity and abhor complexity. All good art is simple.

Trivia:

An old friend of directors Jus Addiss and Ezra Stone. See more »
