After being accepted to Harvard as an intellectual history major and being convinced to audition for plays by my college roommates, I auditioned for 15 and didn't get called back for a single one. I had been a road manager for punk bands and a stage manager for a traveling theater company, but nothing had materialized. Out of the blue, though, I got a call to audition for the movie Sneakers
out in L.A. and I had very little experience. When I was there, auditioning for the role in front of Ben Kingsley
and Robert Redford
and getting nods of approval, it provided validation to my efforts. That was my first big movie, and I knew that my life would not be dictated by normality.
