found this photo. i keep it around to remind me that i was once completely and utterly focused on becoming a great american actor. it’s all i cared about.
this is a play called class enemy. johnathan idelson is by the door and chris joyce has his back to us. i’m playing every actor’s dream: a racist punk. lots to chew on there and i most certainly did. i believe i won some award from something or other. l.a. weakly? hmm. anyone?
it’s a really cool play which i’m sure assholes attempt to update and fail.
this was late december 1984. i actually got a call backstage letting me know i’d gotten a regular role in my first t.v. series playing one of chad lowe’s funny friends, weight loss the other one being oscar nominee grant heslov.
