I don't even drink coffee.
I cry at the end of every book.
I am such a goody-two-shoes.
As soon as things become predictable, they become boring.
I want people around me who call me out and hold me accountable.
I started making music for myself when I was sixteen.
I like telling stories.
I keep getting cast as this bad guy, and I don't know why.
I just think Texas and that whole Bible Belt section is so, like, corporate. And I don't agree with organized religion in that respect.
I grew up in Plano, Texas.
My first job was a commercial for Ball Park Fun Franks.
Maybe I'm a better actor when I know there's going to be an older woman involved.
I've written probably over 200 songs that have a verse and a chorus and that's it.
I've never done a blind date but my parents met on a blind date.
I'm kind of A.D.D., and so my mind wanders a lot.
The truth is I want to make music that people enjoy.
People sometimes forget how important Broadway is as a place for young actors to grow.
New York is a character, all on its own, and whenever you film there, it becomes part of the show. That's just the nature of being there.
My morals are important to me.
My mom grew up in Kansas, my dad in Indiana. They had boring childhoods.
Ultimately, I'm fine with everything that I've done.
