Let's go into some of the other things that you've done too. And here I've got a comment pulled up from whatever viewers nikon who says loved his character in prison break. That was really a big breakout role for you. Yeah, I've been around for like twenty years before that. I lived in, supported myself in, in my craft, but.You know, people used to come up to me going, hey, you're aren't you an actor? You're an actor, are you? Tell me. Tell me five things you've done.So I would stupidly name five projects and they go no, no, no, tell me five more and I be like a little barking dog.

And then finally just go no, no, I'm not going do that. I'm an actor, trust me, I'm an actor. And then prison break happened and.That was it, I mean.International hit fun role, many different sides to that character, same as with billy Graham and, and the actor that I play, Roger Reeves who who plays billy Graham. And all I can say is that I I, I'm very thankful for that part.It it was a monster you know but it was kind of like an iconic monster so people want to know about your hand in prison.

At the end of the first season I grew up with a dad who hated television right. We never we we had to pull a little teeny tiny black and white TV out of the out of the out of the closet and plug it in and watch dark shadows and then stick it back in so I don't watch TV a lot as as an adult and at the end of the first season the producers and writers said to me what do you think about the fact of like cutting your hand off for t bag? 

We're thinking about doing that and I said I'm sure as long as it hasn't been done hasnt been done on television because I don't know you guys would know you know, more TV than I do. They said no, I don't think it's been done. Um, the first hand that they had for me was um, I think they were trying to save a little bit money down in Dallas and they hired an actual prosthetic company, not a special effects company to put my hand in the mold and to and it was like a glove to.Put on my hand and god bless them, they did a great job, but they made the hand, the rubber hand, the exact same size as my hand instead of bigger.

So when I put this very hard rubber hand over my hand, it was literally like I could squeeze your hand as hard as I could squeeze it. I could only wear it for about five minutes at a time and I would pull it off and dump it out and the sweat would just go.Onto the floor. So anytime you saw me in pain in that, it was really horrible. Okay? Blame it, blame it on thest.
