Freak Out Audition
I´m not the tallest of guys. I wasnt going to fulfill my dream of going into NBA
There was an audition for a musical Les Miserables
Very first day of pranks we played basketball in a backyard
Crew guys are the best!
I was paranoid every day of work I was gonna get pranked
My girlfriend asked “Never put me on this show”
I just auditioned. It was a really fun audition
I did a musical Boomer Mania my first year in LA. It was very popular with old people
Two years into LA i got an agent and then i got a part in a TV show
I went to college at Yale University. I was doing a monologue in A Chorus Line
This woman said “My husband is an actor, nominated for an Oscar and he wants to say hi”
We talked for an hour and Brad Dourif said “If you ever move to LA i´d love to help you”
Him and his wife became my LA parents. He introduced me to my manager and i got an agent through him
I´m lucky to have mentors like Brad who gives me good advice
Prepare to do your best and then have fun
“Just do your best and have fun.” Dan´s dad
“Never judge your job of acting on your job as auditioner” Brad Dourif
