Quote: "Growing up, I just didn't know what I wanted to do. One day, a girlfriend suggested that I might try being an actor. Her remark was right out of the blue, but it triggered something in my head, and I took her advice.|
Right before Friday came along, I was going out to readings, not getting the parts. I had already done this movie, Return of the Living Dead, and here I was, thinking that once it came out, that things would begin happening in a big way for me. But even after it did, and I got good notices, I wasn't getting any offers. So, I started putzing around and getting real depressed. And that film did help. But it was just that I was expecting a flood of offers and I wasn't getting any work. It was really frustrating.
I'll tell you why I did Jason Lives. I was in no position to turn down the lead in a film being distributed by Paramount Pictures that would be seen by a whole lot of people. No matter what some think of the Friday movies, they can establish that an actor can carry a picture." - pg. 149, Crystal Lake Memories
