Praise for His Book, One Less Bitter Actor
“I wish I had this book when I was swimming upstream at the beginning of my career. The advice about on-set behavior is especially useful. This book will help anyone who reads it.”
“One Less Bitter Actor puts down in writing every good habit every actor should have. I have seen bitterness sour the best of them. It might also be titled One Much Better Actor because if you take this book to heart you’re sure to put your best work out.”
–Denise Chamian, casting director
“I’ve had three great teachers, Jake Gyllenhall, Paul Bettany, and Markus Flanagan.”
–Austin Nichols (Ray Donovan)
