I auditioned in Chicago for Juilliard and didn't get in. I was basically living in a back room of my parents' house, paying rent and not doing anything with my life. I'd like to say it was patriotic to join the Marines, but it was also that I was doing nothing honorable with my life, and spending too much time at McDonald's.
The Marine Corps is some of the best acting training you could have.
'Girls' feels very active and stirring a conversation and controversial, and you can't really ask for more as an actor.
I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn't make a living doing it. You don't have a lot of options in Indiana anyway, though, so I didn't want to stay there. I graduated early and worked a bunch of really odd jobs, and then I joined the Marines.
Working on 'Girls' opened up a lot of opportunity for me. It's like a dream job. It's a dream.
