The tables are slightly turned for this episode. I get interviewed by Jonathan McFadden, writer for The Biscuit, to discuss my experience working on the film The Hate U Give. Jonathan and I talk candidly about how we were effected by the film as both a viewer and a participant in telling the story, and how it can impact our communities and help bring awareness to a very powerful subject.

If you’re an actor on any level, if you’ve ever considered pursuing acting at all, you need to listen to my conversation with SCOTT THOMAS.

LEE SPENCER may have served you a beer, or maybe you bumped into him at a yoga class. But, this career actor is a graduate of the American Academy in NYC. He spent 15 years busting his butt in LA. He has experienced every high and low an actor can imagine, and I had a great time talking to him about every moment of his adventure.
KEITH HARRIS might just be the nicest guy in show business. He decided he wanted to be an actor at 9 years old. Since then, Keith has worked on over 70 films and tv shows. Burt Reynolds said he’s the next Mark Wahlberg. That's a pretty smart 9 year old.

APRIL TURNER is a self proclaimed master of short term memory. Her ability to enjoy the work and "let it go" has helped keep this amazing actress sane in a crazy business.

Mark Scarboro loves to "pop the hood" and see how things work, and he can usually figure it out pretty quickly. Acting was no different. Hell, he booked his very first audition! Since then it has been a rollercoaster of amazing experiences, successes and disappointments, and each one is just as entertaining as the last. (And, if it sounds like we're eating, it's because we are.)
