|#||Marks / Signs|
|1||Regularly plays Troublemaking characters|
|2||Low soft voice|
|1||You can have a great character in a really bad script and the movie will never be seen. It’s just too much work to commit to a movie and not let it come out.|
|2||Going to film school taught me how much I already knew, and that the best way to learn about film is to be on set with professionals.|
|3||I took myself out of business to study film at NYU and the School of Visual Arts. I grew up on film sets and was fascinated by the camera and behind the scenes work. I felt that knowing all aspects of film would help my career as an actor.|
|4||‘Home Alone’ had become the absolute biggest movie I’d ever made, and it became the third highest grossing movie of all time. So it clearly had an effect on me that is unmatched by any other movie experience in my youth.|
|5||After film school, I started promoting independent films. But after a while I realized I was breaking my back with shoots six days a week, 14 hour days and no guarantee on distribution.|
