Where does that confidence come from?I was an only child, so I was very independent. I was good at small talk and I was a charmer. I got the lead in the school show, and I just remember loving it. I had the best time, so I told my parents that was what I wanted to do.How did you make it as a professional performer while still at university?There was a strict rule at NYU that you weren’t allowed to audition for anything. I said, “F*** that.” At my third audition I got a job in a fake band on the David Letterman show. The other four guys in it were in Footloose, and they really liked me, so I went in and got my first Broadway show. I was 19 years old. I decided to drop out of college and I moved in with one of the guys from the show. I was off.How did you deal with big-city temptations when you were so young?It was a really young cast and it was crazy. We went out every night and it was so unprofessional, but my high-school sweetheart was a Christian, so I went to church with her. I didn’t have sex until I was 20
