I decided sitcoms weren't for me.
I had done the sitcom thing to lesser and lesser degrees of success.
Every little kid has always wanted to be a race car driver. This gets some of that out.
My grandmother was born in 1900, and she would regale me with tales I call 'Little House on the Prairie' tales, but they were tales of segregated and racist America growing up in Alabama and Mississippi, where she came from.
I've tried actively to define myself and redefine myself, and not be pigeonholed.
I couldn't wait to be, you know, a Black Panther. Of course they wouldn't let me join.
