show them what you're worth

Do you think an actor has to write his own projects to get ahead in Hollywood these days?”

“No one’s going to hand you things. To be completely frank, if you’re someone like me, and you’re a really specific, niche type of person, you really have to make opportunities yourself. You don’t have to be a genius to think that. When I look back at my childhood heroes, I realize there was no one who was me in a nutshell. There wasn’t one person I wanted to be. I wanted to be Tina Fey slash Woody Allen slash Mickey Mouse. So, I had to be a template for myself.
