Personal Quote:

[on writing and directing vs. acting] I always inspired to be a writer/director when acting. Now I am one, I miss acting. I look back at acting as not as anxiety-inducing or irresponsible for taking the wrong parts or that the whole weight of the movie didn't weight on you. I have some nostalgia for it, but when I was doing it I always had my eye on being director. See more »

Trivia:

Was originally slated to direct After the Sunset (2004), but dropped out of the production in the summer of 2003. See more »
