Personal Quote:

I was interested in acting when I was a teenager. And I acted in plays and things like that. But it's not something I've ever wanted to do as an adult. I always wanted to write and direct. I'm lucky enough to be able to get some of these movies made. I went down this path, and I don't see any need to diverge from it. See more »

Trivia:

Some of the character names in his movies, most notably in Rushmore (1998), were actually the names of his St. John's classmates. See more »
