#tbt When I was 19, my brother won a high school playoff game as a backup quarterback and I thought, “That would make an awesome movie.” I immediately saw the character I’d play: a thoughtful, literate, hemp-necklace-wearing anti-jock. But I never got to writing it. Turns out, I didn’t have to. Two years later, the script for #VARSITYBLUES landed on my doorstep, BUT... with an offer to play Lance, the star QB - not the backup. I explained to the producers my passion for playing Mox... and they said “No.” A week later, they reluctantly let me screen test for the role - against five other guys - and had seven days to make their decision. They waited until the seventh day. But ultimately, the role was mine. And twenty one years later, people still talk about this movie... and it makes smile every time they do. Much love to everyone who made the movie what it was, especially Paul & Ron. Miss you guys.

My thoughts on the Varsity Blues scandal are featured in the Boston Herald today after a surprise interview request came into our offices at a Valley Prep Tutoring yesterday morning. Link in Bio. @bostonherald#varsityblues#collegeadmissions
My highlight of the game. When the ball went out of bounds this Junior @gryphonsguelph fan had to walk to almost mid court to return it to the ref. Needless to say the @gryphonsmbb team and the visiting #VarsityBlues didn’t rush her at all. (Permission rec’d to post )
