Can you tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know or would never guess?
I love to sing. When I was a kid I knew I was going to be a performer but I hated acting. I did little musicals in grade school and I couldn’t wait to get through the acting part to get to the song. When high school came around, I got into Music and Art (the Fame School in New York City) for singing but I turned it down to go to Bronx Science which is a nerdy magnet school. My parents really wanted me to get a good education and felt there would be time for performing down the road if I was still interested. I think of my path here as a twisty one that could have landed me in an entirely different place if I had made a different choice all those years ago.
Those are my boys…
You wanna know how many women I’ve slept with over the last 10 years? Hundreds! Maybe more, I don’t know. I barely see their faces. I married Wendy because I was lonely. Because I got tired of the endless disconnect. It was just a sad time-out. Because when I’m inside someone, there’s only one face I see. When you came home, it was like some kind of sign to me. Like my past coming around to give me another shot to do this different; better. And now that chance is running back to Chicago.
