”It’s not always about the role as much as it is about people. I’ve come to find out that the experiences you have with people you film with, is way more important than the role.”

”It’s funny I grew up with baseball. My sport was football, my older brother plays basketball as an international pro, but my sport was football my whole life, so I never wanted to be a baseball player.”

”Ultimately, it’s all about whether the fans watch and enjoy the show. Critics don’t have Nielsen boxes, no matter what they think.”

“I’m not a cop, but it does give you a different appreciation for the LAPD. Doing the ride-along, talking to them, you understand it’s a priority that you go home at night.”


”I was fortunate to get into acting because of a professor of mine in college. I was planning to be a lawyer. I used to party a little bit too much in college, and so I had to take an acting class thinking how hard can it be.”

”The hype is always weird because it can set you up for great success or a big failure. I’m just hoping that people tune in and enjoy the show.”

”I try to walk into the set with joy. Of course, you have your ups and downs, but I believe in the joy of the lord.”

You did a great job as Mike in the movies "Why Did I Get Married," and "Why Did I Get Married Too." Your character was one you'd love to hate. You were that great in that role! Kudos!
