What are your preshow/postshow rituals?
Before every show, I eat an entire cantaloupe . . . just kidding. My preshow ritual is just so boring. I stretch. I warm-up.
After a show, I'm always good for a drink.

What is your favorite thing about San Francisco?
The crystal blue skies. We don't get that much on the east coast.

If you weren't an actor, what would you be?
Sitting on a beach. That life seems nice.

What was your most memorable job interview?
I've never had a real job.

What is your favorite moment in Dead Metaphor?
When my cue light goes off to start the show.

Which character do you identify with the most?
Probably Dean. Except for the trained killer part and the expecting father part and the strained relationship with my father part. I guess, the biggest identifiable trait is we are both around the same age.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
In my late 20s.
