[on working in Los Angeles] I love L.A. - don't get me wrong. But I miss everything about New York. I don't eat cheese, but I miss the smell of pizza in the city. I'm a really big fan of Latino food. I want to go back home and have some good arroz con pollo.
I get offered a lot of black roles, because apparently I don't look Latino enough.
