Every job built my career in some way or made me grow as a person or I got to meet someone great. I had one line on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but I met Will Smith and he took 20 minutes out of his day to talk to the kid with one line. To this day, I think that guy is amazing because of that.
I'm tough on the outside and soft on the inside (...) I'm really a shy guy.
I'm sure I'll find something to do. Some kind of trouble to get into.
