I remember after Phil Hartman died, I read an article in which a casting director said, “Phil was so funny that he simply walked into my office with a straight face and I busted out laughing, and he was like ‘What?!’”
My friend Josh has that same quality. I’m glad I wasn’t there when he knelt down last week and ripped his jeans from knee to crotch, because I don’t think anywhere nearby was qualified to handle a defibrillator.
Actually, it’s a one-bedroom. But living in an apartment is one of the many sacrifices I make while I happily pursue my dream. And I love the pursuit. I love the people, the challenges, the city of Los Angeles, and, most of all, the feeling that makes my heart quicken every time I get to do the thing that I love: acting.
