Team PETER! But he's my pops. I went to college season 4 or 5, i forget which so they lightened the load. It looks like I might be doing a bit of the good fight at some point, so I'm looking forward to that.
Julliana was a dream, she wrote one of my letters of rec, and honestly getting to work with so many theatrically trained actors – since we were based in NYC – was a dream. Theres a boldness and a reluctance to play things safe that really resonated with me, and still does now! And we still run into each other at broadway shows and whatnot. It's a small world out there.

It doesn't happen as often as I'd like, but when a role comes around that feels truly authentic and born from a person's desire to tell a story rather than make money, and I commit to getting to the bottom of that person, I find, time and time again, that no matter how different these people are from me on the surface, it's never a matter of taking of the graham mask and slapping on another. It's a matter of getting to the place where you realize that a piece of you is in everyone you'll ever meet. You definitely have to let the ego go a bit for that work to really settle in, which can be hard as this industry can be fairly brutal. That's why you see these divas walking around with huge entitlement issues. It's often less that they feel they really deserve all their success or that they normally would be the kind of person to look down on everyone else, and more that its the only way they know how to insulate themselves from what can be a pretty judgmental and volatile industry. If that makes sense. You're welcome for the ramble.

The next film that I'm working on is actually on the directing side. I'm doing my brother and it's called rumble through the dark. It's based on a novel called The Fighter (incredible book and quick read if you're in the market for something exciting about a crazy part of the US) written by Michael Farris Smith. It takes place in the Mississippi Delta and follows a bareknuckle fistfighter as he fights his way out of debt to the dangerous Big Momma Sweet. A bunch of other stuff happens, but that's the jist of it. We're going out to cast it this week so we're pretty excited and we're slated to shoot in April.

To hide how little I wanted to do this when I originally had to send reddit the title last week.
