Other stuff about me: I have a close-knit group of friends that are as close to me as brothers. I try to score theatre tickets off my colleagues whenever I can. I like small bars with large beer selections over loud clubs. I still mostly eat like a 15 year-old (though the body isn't bouncing back quite so easily these days), but I grew up with 2 Italian grandmothers so when I actually cook it's elaborate and it feeds 12.
My producing career has given me the opportunity to work on some pretty amazing projects, you should totally ask me about them. I still act/direct from time to time and write whenever I get inspired, but it's not really the focus of my career anymore.
I'm pretty observent and perceptive as well. I generally have a good read on what the people around me are thinking.
Side note: although I played sports in high school we never had letterman jackets much less wore them around while indoors. This makes me wonder if this is an entirely contrived TV scenario, like how a senior looks at an unopened letter from a potential college and is too nervous to open it not knowing if he got in when everyone knows that acceptance letters come in huge thick envelopes that say welcome in big letters, thus removing all tension from the situation... or maybe just my school didn't have those jackets
If I had to answer though it would be the following:
Book: Catcher in the Rye
Movie: The Godfather
TV: Breaking Bad
I should also mention that I probably skipped this part of your profile...not because I'm not interested, rather because this seems like the kinda thing we could actually talk about.
-the spot (it's this little park near my house where I grew up...think any random sitcom about high school kids and whatever they called the spot)
-barbaques and fire-pits
-my cell-phone (because I now have no idea what anyone's phone number is without it...which is wierd cuz when I was a kid I remember knowing my friends phone numbers by heart, calling them on my house phone, having their parents answer, asking to talk to whoever I was calling, having them yell for whoever needed to come to the phone, hearing in the distance "I'm coming," them picking up the other line, hearing them say "I got it," then wondering if their parents actually hung up the other line...that was a bit of a digression but its funny to think that that entire experience was an everyday occurence and is now gone forever.)
-a story to tell
-sunscreen (I spend way more time outside than my pale skin can handle on its own)
Real answer: Friends are getting older, settling down, getting married, having kids and the like. Still spend weekends together when it works out, but lately been spending some weekends just hanging home. Definitely not the type to cruise into a bar solo.
Since it's come up a couple of times I thought I'd just put this out there: I'm not really a religious person, so it's not important to me to have the same upbringing as a potential partner. That said I totally understand that it is for some people, so I will say that my mother is Catholic.
