"I’m a huge fanboy of everything. And I was a fan of this franchise for a really long time—it was this television show that was just ending— called “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. If you have not watched this show, you have to check it out. It probably has the best voice actors of all time—it’s so good. Beautiful storytelling, beautiful artwork, incredible series. Anyways, so I’m nerding out with this complete stranger [casting director Scott David] like, “Yeah, I really like this show and you know they’re going to make a movie of it?” And he was like, “Yeah, I know the casting director.” “…What?” So we just got to talking about this movie. It ended up being an awful movie, so don’t go see it. It was fucking awful. I can say “fuck” right? I’m trying to connect to the kids, man. I’m trying to sugar coat it with cuss words to give it heart. So anyways, the point was, he kind of off hand was like, “Well yeah, I know the casting director of that and you should meet this agent.” Literally three hours later he was like, “Do you know what this is?” and there was a big sign in front of us that said UTA. And UTA was this big old corporate agency out in LA that represented Johnny Depp and Harrison Ford and I’m looking at him like “Are you crazy? You don’t even know me, man! Like I could be the WORST actor you’ve ever met.” But just kind of offbeat and nice he was like, “Yeah, you should have a meeting with him. I’ll schedule it.” And I was completely dumbfounded by this. So I got in my friends beat-up Station Wagon and drove up to the Beverly Hills UTA, with all these guys throwing tips to the valets in their hot Jaguars. And I’m like coming out with my busted-up jeans and my old raggedy-ass car being like “Whaddup?”"
