I don't see myself as extremely handsome. I just figure I can charm you into liking me.
My sign is Leo. A Leo has to walk with pride. When he takes a step, he has to put his foot down. You walk into a room and you want people to know your presence, without you doing anything.
I love being a dad, it keeps me fit and inspired and children are so funny. They always supply you with acting material!
Personally I find there is just as much if not more creativity among game makers as there is among feature filmmakers.
I never really planned on making action films. It just kind of happened.
