At the Pan African Film Festival for a screening of the award-winning short film
"Trouble Man" in which I play Officer Lawson.
I really enjoyed meeting and chatting with fellow UCB alum Bob Odenkirk following a special screening of
"Better Call Saul" at the DGA Theater.
With Christian Slater at a special event for "Mr. Robot".
One of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, Christian brings a gritty intensity to the title character in the series which I've thoroughly enjoyed watching.
At a special event for the Amazon series "Bosch".
With John Savage at the Action On Film Festival. It was great to share a dinner
table with John and get to know him. I've followed this world class actor ever since "The Deer Hunter" and I'm always
moved by his work. He's in the film "The Neighborhood" which screened
at the fest and won several awards. I was there with my film "Rope Trick"
for which I was nominated Best Director - Short.
At the Culver City Film Festival with Alicja Bachleda for the premiere screenings of "Polaris" and
"Rope Trick". Our films screened together
to a full house at the Arclight Theater.
With Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss following a special screening of "Shots Fired"
at the TV Academy Theater. It's not every day you meet an actor with this kind of history. I told him "Mr. Holland's Opus" changed
my life. He looked at me very seriously and said "Mine too." That is one of my favorite films of all time, and Richard is absolutely
brilliant in it.
With the very charming Aisha Hinds, star of "Shots Fired"
and "Underground", at the TV Academy Theater.
Ann Dowd is a thoroughly charming lady and one of my favorite actors. We're here at an event for
"The Handmaid's Tale" at the DGA Theater. Ann's performance in this Hulu
series is absolutely stellar.
It was a pleasure to meet Vanessa Kirby after a special screening of
in which Vanessa gave an absolutely devastating performance as Princess Margaret. When I complimented her performance
she said "If it's on the page..." which is true true true, but nonetheless I believe
Vanessa is one of the best actors in the world, and an extremely nice person as well.
