Hello. I'm a writer, director, and then sometimes I'm in shows.
My latest film is called The Double, in theaters & on demand May 9, here's the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzw0wEcsfxE
And general info: http://www.magpictures.com/thedouble/
Should we start or something? I don't know. Ask me anything.
Thanks very much everyone - I have to go now and have a protein shake with Bradley Cooper and if it's not mixed properly he'll put me in a choke hold. Hope you're all well and remember that if The Double doesn't sell more tickets than Titanic they take away my family and the bottom row of my teeth.
