American actor and producer. (The Signal, 2007, The House of the Devil, 2009)
To have a part that is written for you certainly helps an actor.
I did four movies where I gained, like, fifty pounds. I had curly hair, and I had all of this facial hair. I had put on all this weight for these movies, and I did four or five of them back-to-back. Then I cut the weight and I got fit again. I cut my beard and I took away the mustache, and people were like, 'What are you doing?'
I'm an incredibly intelligent, insightful human being.
As an actor, the ambition is to play interesting characters. And in the indie genre world, the budgets are low. That allows me, as an actor, not to have a financial value behind my name, to justify me being in these bigger parts for these types of movies.
I love '80s horror.
To be fair, I don't think it's a plague to say I have the misfortune of making movies for a living.
