Frequently played youths trying to break away from older ideals
When I was 16 I was cast by [Stephen] Sondheim for a six-week workshop of Into the Woods. One day Sondheim came in with [the just-written song] 'Giants in the Sky.' He pointed to me and said, 'This is for Bobby.' I pretty much could have died.
I didn't want to be the lead guy. That's too much work. But I thought that it might be fun to be the lead guy's friend. I'd have days off and still get a paycheck every week. Hugh Laurie, who plays House, is remarkable. I lean in the door and say, 'Hey, what do you think about egg salad [for lunch]?' Then I have two days in a row off. It's a great gig.
