Spin City

I was so excited to get my first commercial that I almost didn’t go to the Sundance Film Festival when ‘The Brothers McMullen’ got in. After two years of trying, I finally got my first commercial. ‘Brothers McMullen’ was truly my big break. I got it out of Backstage, and I didn’t have an agent and I wasn’t in SAG, and it went on to win the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and everything changed. And that film’s director, Ed Burns, is definitely a champion. I’ve done three movies with him, and I learned so much about the way I love to work by working with him. Pete Berg, too. I love working with the same people over and over again; I feel it always allows me to do my best work. Because I know that person is behind me.
