Because I've been here too long to start there at this point. Because my day job pays way too well to start from that bottom now. Because I have a dog and can't work 2932938098234 hours a day. Because I also have a mortgage & the pay doesn't accommodate that. Because I think I'm going to come into things from a different angle.
Mostly, because I'm an actor too. I didn't move here to get in a room. If I get a show deal, it's because I'm starring in it and I created it.
