Personal Quote:

I get star-struck anytime I meet performers that I grew up watching and appreciating. I mean, it's still incredibly surreal to me that I was a kid in San Antonio watching movies and then now I'm working with some of the people that were in those movies. I don't think it'll ever stop being surreal on some level. See more »


Friend of Dana Ashbrook, whom he directed in his 2004 play "Sustenance." Ashbrook starred in Roday's favorite show Twin Peaks (1990) and guest-starred in the Psych (2006) episode that Roday wrote as an homage to "Twin Peaks." According to Roday, Ashbrook was instrumental in helping some of the pieces fall in place for the episode. See more »
