Quotes

#Quote
1[on his film, There's Always Woodstock] I play a young, Jewish doctor... My mom's dream come true.
2The Lone Star experience was tough at the time, but it really allowed me to look at things from a 3,000-foot high view. You can think something is the greatest thing in the world, but, as we know, anything can happen. It really taught me that I always want to make choices that I believe in artistically. No one can take that away from you.
3Regarding being selected to portray Brad Cohen in 2008's Front of the Class, Hallmark Hall of Fame (1951) - It mobilized my emotions, which makes it so much easier to act. When you feel moved by the story, you want to tell that story.
