Quote: "I moved to L.A. when I was seventeen years old. I was living in my car. I had no talent and no contracts. But I met John Carl Buechler through my friend John Vulich. I said to Buechler, 'John, I'll sweep the floor, anything. I just want to learn about moviemaking.' So he taught me how to paint and make molds, and one day he asked me if I had ever thought about being an actor. I said, 'Truth be told, that is what I want to do.' So he hooked me up with Charlie Band and I ended up doing a lot of films for Empire Pictures, traveling back and forth between Italy and the U.S.|
One day in Buechler's shop when I heard he was doing Part VII, and I flipped out. I was a huge fan of the franchise. I begged John to audition. And when you go up for a Friday the 13th movie, they don't give you many lines. It's you in an office with eight people eating ham sandwiches, and they are like, 'He's coming after you! He's stalking you! He's killing you!' And you do it over and over again. Or maybe I just look good with an axe in my face. Because I ended up getting the part." - pg. 176, Crystal Lake Memories
