Personal Quote:

You can spend $100,000 and go into massive debt at a film school so you can come to Hollywood and start from scratch. To me that's a total waste of time. Or, you can come to Hollywood, do as your told, get your hands dirty, and learn by example. As long as you don't act like you know everything, you'll save a hell of a lot of money in the process.

Trivia:

His 'Queso Chip Dip' is the stuff of legends. It's so popular at dinner parties that guests have been known to take home the actual dinner in to-go bags after hovering over the appetizer. The recipe is, of course, a secret. See more »
