Quote: "I always say I got into acting because I had no choice. That was the only thing I thought I could do. And when I moved out to L.A., I said to my agent, 'There are two things I really need to do: a horror film and a soap opera, because they're so bad, they're good.'|
The funny thing is, my agent was like, 'There's this Friday the 13th, and even though the character's a man, I think you'd be really good for it.' So when I walked in for my audition, I kind of did a fake-out on Adam Marcus and the casting directors, where I said, in this beach bunny voice, 'Hi! So nice to meet you!' And they were like, 'What the hell is this?' Then all of a sudden, I switched into my Chicago gangster voice: 'What the fuck are you doin'!? What the fuck da you want!?' And they were dying. They asked me to do it again because they were laughing so hard. Then they brought in Leslie Jordan and put us together, and Leslie is like a little elf, and an incredible actor. And he started calling me 'Pookie.' Which was great, because he was supposed to be the 'man,' but he's so femme. And they were all laughing even harder. And right there, on the spot, Adam just said, 'Why doesn't he play your husband? It'll be hilarious!' And that a really good testament to Adam, because he was up for anything. So we ended up making up a lot of stuff just as we were doing it." - pg. 225, Crystal Lake Memories
