      • He was able to go from one guest gig to another 
    • X-Men: The Animated Series
      • Projected didn’t have the title - had Project X; he saw he was reading for a character called Beast and put it together
      • For most shows, recorded individually. For X-Men, cast recorded together as much as possible 
      • X-Men didn’t gear to small kids; like doing an adult series
      • He didn’t need to do research because  scripts were tight and concise and rich
      • English major; some references were familiar; some were made up by the writers
      • Favorite - Beauty and the Beast; all about sacrificing his feelings to avoid pain for Carly
      • Playing Beast taught him about control. 
      • Was a big kid; could take out a kid; did once, faced the consequences
      • Bullied as a kid; he became the one who told the jokes
      • Beast used peace over violence; violence only when necessary
    • X-Men film
      • He got a call from his agent
      • At the audition, someone recognized him as the voice of Beast
      • Singer was at the table and said that they were grateful for X-Men the Animated Series because w/o show, probably no X-Men movie
      • Got hired to play the Trucker on the spot
      • 5 days of work with Anna Paquine and Hugh Jackman
    • Impact of the show
      • He’s not on social media
      • Had no idea of the impact the show had until he started doing conventions in 2019
      • Understand if you felt disenfranchised then the show would resonate
