How long have you been an actor?
I've been an actor for my entire life. I started with baby modeling and that blossomed in to commercials and TV . Then came movies and bigger roles. When I was invited back on LOST, it became a Carrier.
Whats the differences between being a broadway actor and a tv/movie actor? Which do you prefer ?
Yes, stage and screen are two very different beasts. There is nothing like the stage. The rush you get knowing there is only one shot and all these hundreds of people are sitting right in front of you watching. But usually that pressure makes me thrive. Whereas filming a movie or TV show you can trick you mind and really be 100% emerged in a role and time because it's a bit easier to pretend that fourth wall is there.
Tell us more about your new role on NBC series "Law & Order: True Crime-the Menendez Murders”.
Law & Order: True Crime The Menendez Murders is premiering on NBC this fall, Sept. 26th at 10pm. The 8-episode series will follow the infamous case of Lyle and Erik Menendez, brothers who were convicted in 1996 of murdering their parents. In the vein of Ryan Murphy’s OJ series, the show is already getting Emmy buzz for next year! I will be playing Glenn Stevens, Lyle's best friend from Princeton, a Collage Hockey Player. Having Lyles long time friend, He became Lyle's business partner after the murders and is with Lyle during most key moments leading up to his arrest. He also played a big role in the court trials. Edie Falco stars as Defense attorney, Leslie Abramson.
How did you prepare for this role?
I watched over 30 hours of documentary footage on the brothers, read every articulate I could find, and did as much personal research in to Glenn Himself. What's most interesting about Glenn is at first he's so desperate to be famous off the case it almost works against him.
