7. What is your dream job and why?
My dream job. So, here's the thing. I pretty much already have my dream job. I can't make a living off of it yet (KEY WORD!), but that doesn't mean it's not my job. I'm an actor and I LOVE IT! There's never been anything else in my life that I've never gotten tired of doing at some point or other. Acting is like a drug. Of course, it's nice to have a short break every once in a while, but inevitably the bug will be back.
Now, ideally what I'd like to do in that particular career path is one of several things:
Sitcom. Series regular. Something family-friendly that runs for 6-8 seasons and gets picked up for syndication. In fact, if I could do several sitcoms that would be even better!
Movie career. Obviously. I feel like I'd be a nerdy, mostly comedic, male Meryl Streep when all is said and done. Or like the boy-next-door geek version of Johnny Depp. I'd be ok with that. (Not that I consider myself on their level, but that I'd like to have a similar career - lots of really fun, meaty, charactery stuff.)
Educational TV. This is probably my #1 wish. I want to have my own kid's TV show. Think Bill Nye meets Reading Rainbow. A reading show geared toward kids in 4/5/6 grade. Comprehension strategies. But zany and quirky and fun like Mr. Nye.
Any combination of the above would be great as well.
I also wouldn't mind a career where someone paid me to travel the world eating good food and experiencing all the luxuries of life.
