Personal Quote:

"I always wanted to direct. That's my passion. I was an actor. That went nowhere. I tried directing theatre. Nope. I wrote this movie called 'Killing Mrs. Tingle.' Sold it. It sat on the shelf. My unemployment dried up. I couldn't get work. I had borrowed money from all my friends. I wrote 'Scary Movie' [later retitled: Scream]. Just banged all it out, as fast as I could." - His success story. See more »

Trivia:

Since 1999, he is no longer executive producer and writer of Dawson's Creek (1998). See more »
