For young and aspiring actors, he said, “Get in an acting class and see if this is something that you really enjoy. If it is, just double down. Then, don’t have a fallback plan. You won’t succeed if you have a way out. Also, don’t take anything personally. I’ve had 640 auditions, I’ve had 40 ‘yeses’ and 600 ‘nos’ in my career. I’ve gotten masterful in not taking anything personally.”
Regarding the title of the current chapter of his life, he said, “Rediscovery.”
