Almost always at the bottom of it is some deep insecurity. Putting your finger on what each individual's particular insecurity is goes a long way to fleshing that person out.
I lived in Red Hook, Brooklyn, for about 10 years, and then we moved out to Jersey City after my wife and I bought a house up in the Catskills. I miss Brooklyn, but the commute to the Catskills is about 45 minutes shorter.
I'm a dad and a husband, and so the things that I love to do are all geared around my family.
My greatest desire as an actor is to keep people guessing and not do anything close to what I did last time.
