Now Robert is here to answer ‘Listeners Top Ten’.
1. Character you’ve played that you relate to the most?
Damien Carter is pretty spot on when I relate my personal character to a character I’ve played. He’s a good guy, smart, but is willing to push the boundaries and leave private school to go after his dream of playing ball and WINNING.
He’s a good guy pushed to break the rules because he is that passionate. I’ve experienced mirrored circumstances of this in my own career.
2. What would be your dream role?
I love saving woman vs. saving the world!! To run, shoot the gun, and most importantly steal a kiss from the girl of my dreams…There’s no greater role.
3. Who was your first celebrity crush?
Well my first is Halle Berry because she’s a knockout. As of late, Nina Dobrev is looking pretty fine on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine Sept 2013. 😉
4. Current television show you can’t miss?
NFL Football. Cant miss it, not even for a food run!!!!
5. Movie you can watch hundred times?
Catch Me If you Can with Leonardo. If I could only watch one movie for the rest of my life, that’s my Go To on the couch. Inception ain’t half bad either 😉
6. Song you play on repeat?

Hands down, Nick Hornby. Read High Fidelity and then read About A Boy. Classically, I like Homer. Odyssey I one of the best books ever written in history. Everything you can want in a book, love, war, intellect, famine, victory, defeat, glory…EPIC!!!

Bonus Question: In a Zombie Apocalypse, who would you want by your side?
