But all areas of stage and screen interest me. I'm currently working on a series of children's books about a pig named Milo.”How would someone who really knows you describe your best traits?“Hmmm. Perhaps a very loyal, honest and funny guy, who's very laid back. Devil may care kinda vibe. I think that I'm very lucky--not lottery lucky, but naturally lucky.”How would someone who really knows you describe your worst traits?“Sometimes I'm frank to a fault. In an argument people say that I make them feel stupid. I'm also stubborn about certain things (hey! I'm a Taurus!)”What do you do for fun?“For fun I like to drink a bit of scotch, listen to vinyl with my roommates, and watch movies.”What are your favorite musical groups/artists?“I listen to The Constantines, Frank Sinatra, Death Cab for Cutie, Mel Torme, and Bruce Springsteen right now. I'm pretty open to a lot of things, excluding a lot of rap and Creed/System of the Down kinda crap.”If you have any brothers or sisters, are you close? How would you describe your relationship with them?“Chris and I are very close. I mean, we've done so much together! I enjoy working the stage and screen with him far more than anyone else. We've got a pretty uncanny connection that reaches all the way into that weird "twin connection" realm; to a certain extent we can feel each other's pain or distress, and anticipate thoughts and words. We can have a conversation that consists of very few words because not many are needed.”Who are your heroes and why?“Most of the people I look up to are the mighty stage actors of the past--currently John Barrymore and Alec Guiness. Not a very post-Sept. 11th answer, but I'm just a simple actor. Perhaps a selfish simple actor.”If you had Aladdin’s lamp and three wishes, what would they be?“Three wishes, eh?I'd like a movie contract with Chris for a major studio.I'd undo environmental damage to the Earth--clean the whole damn thing up and enforce environmental responsibility.I'd like a comfortable amount of money so that I could support my parents and my family.”Selected Theatre Work by Brad Goddard...Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Role: Picasso, U of Waterloo, Directed by Jim DiGioia.
