Your upcoming movie Finding Waldo - in a few words, what is
it about, and what can you tell us about your character?
play “Chance Reed”, a former pro football star, who loses everything
to alcoholism and drunk driving after one fateful night. Now, I’m out on
parole, and working in the mailroom of a high end insurance company, but I
just haven’t gotten back into life. That’s until I get summoned to the
president’s office and instructed to go interview eccentric writer,
is apparently crazy, and it seems to be the case when I interview him,
because he kidnaps me and takes me on the road trip from hell. In end
though, not everything is as it seems.
How did you come on board the
Blu de Golyer [Blu
de Golyer interview - click here] pitched me the script. It took one read through and I was in. While there
are tons of hilarious moments, the story has such a strong message that I
was immediately drawn to it. It’s a story that, both as an actor and
producer, I want to tell.
So how will you approach your
is going to be a real challenge, and one that I can’t wait to take on.
He’s extremely complex, with tons of emotional undertow going on beneath
the surface. One major component that I’ll bring to him is my own
history. I don’t know many people that haven’t struggled with alcohol
in some way, and I’m no different. Those life experiences will be key in
bringing him to life in a very real way.
you can tell us about the rest of your cast yet, and why exactly these
been so fortunate to attach some wonderful folks to the cast. Matthew
Jacobs, who’s an outstanding writer/actor, has come on board to play
Waldo Greene. I’m truly excited to work with him. And, of course, the
delightful Richard Riehle [Richard
Riehle interview - click here], who I had the pleasure of working with on
The Cabining, has joined the cast to play “Cyrus Motley”. I’m
thrilled to work with him again. And recently, Tom Proctor from Guardians of the Galaxy has agreed to play “Bruno”, the owner of
Crazy 8’s, so we’re really excited to have him attached.

Do talk about Finding Waldo's brand of
humour for a bit, and how could you at all relate to the film's comic
has really put together a script full of huge laughs; many of which, for
me, are reminiscent of The Hangover. In end though, those highs only
serve to make the lows more powerful. It really brings out the message of
the film in a strong way.
Your director David Mun [David
Mun interview - click here] - what will he bring to the table?
is such a terrific director. He brings amazing visual stylization to his
work to help tell the story, as you have seen in House of Good and
Evil. I can’t wait to see what he does with Finding Waldo.
