Personal Quotes (4)

The shooting experience has been one of the best experiences of my career. It starts in the writer's room with the rich material we're given to work with. The producers, writers, and entire production staff are some of the best in the world at what they do. It is a privilege and an honor to participate in the documenting of a watershed moment in our city's illustrious history. (Working on HBO's Treme)
When "Treme" was first announced, I was working for "The Dr. Phil Show" and "The Doctors" in post-production. I called Wendell Pierce, who I'd known from our days of competing in Little League baseball, and who has served as a professional mentor to me, and asked him if he could refer me for a writing gig on the show. Wendell told me that David Simon usually hired from within the circle of writers they've worked with in the past. (On trying to get a job on the writing staff of HBO's Treme)
After watching the first season of "Treme," I told my producing partners in Los Angeles that I was going to New Orleans to be a part of this show. In fall 2010, as they were gearing up for season two, I auditioned for a role but didn't get the part. A few months later, in January 2011, I was called in to read for two other parts, and I got the part of Eugene Marsden. (On auditioning for HBO's Treme)
[on working with director John Hillcoat on Triple 9] He knows exactly what he wants in a scene, but he gives you a lot of room to play, and take chances. John is the consummate gentleman and collaborator. It was one of the best experiences I've had working on a film.
