When asked about my type, my answer is pretty simple:
"I play charming little shits"
Too simple? Maybe. But within that type is a nuance and love of telling the story of earnestly imperfect characters in a way that makes you understand them, rather than write them off.
My Type is very similar to Actors like:
-Miles Teller (Whiplash/Rabbit Hole)
-Christopher Abbott (Catch 22/It Comes at Night)
-John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom/Short Term 12)
-Shia LeBeauf (Lawless/Fury)
Some Adjectives to describe what I bring to the characters I play are:
I have a penchant for dialogue heavy writing and political dark comedy.
(Succession, The Newsroom, Catch 22, A Few Good Men, Moneyball, The West Wing, etc.)
My Mission is to Bring Goodness to the Characters
You wouldn't Expect to be Good.
As a storyteller, I am inspired to show folks the humanity that lives behind the mask of people who tend to be written off as undesirable.
The Disobedient Soldier
The Class Clown
The Sarcastic Coworker
The Ungrateful Son
The Out-of-Control Best Friend
These are the characters to whom I feel compelled to lend my artistic voice, not to justify their actions, but to show that they are as human as you and I, with fears, hopes, dreams, beliefs, and things that they hold dear. Because if you do not believe that they are just as human as you are, how can you ever learn from their story.
