We just wrapped “Harold and Kumar 3,” marking the end of my first experience acting in a film.
In fact, before we started shooting, I had never even been on a movie set. To me, the entire shoot was a crash course in movie making.
Here’s what I learned:
-I learned that acting is difficult, and the audience is unforgiving when it comes to excuses. Nobody cares that you only got two or three takes to say a specific line, or that you’re talking to a piece of tape on a camera, and not a…
Three great Q’s and A’s from an amazing Ron Artest Interview. I used to think Ron Artest was crazy– now I realize he’s just 100% unabashedly truthful.

In college I used to make videos for the Internet with my roommates/friends Offer and Pavla before most people even made videos for the Internet. I eventually parlayed my mild Internet video and writing skills into a job at CollegeHumor.com, which forced me to move to New York.
