Misspent Youth

Based on my current visage, it's not a hard leap to imagine what a good looking kid I was. It was on a family trip to Disneyland where I was spotted by a casting director who set forth to find work for me immediately.

I had many spots in random commercials that featured my natural skill for spilling orange juice. I was also cast as "that kid from school" in numerous 80's sitcoms. My largest role of note was probably for "Puggs Malloy" in the live-action Disney musical Newsies. Unfortunately that's where my Hollywood career ended, as a young but influential Christian Bale had me blacklisted when the second unit director suggested the camera liked me better.

Sad, really... I, too, once had a dream that was Santa Fe.
