Writing is a very strenuous thing - it's like banging your head against a wall. At the end of the day, acting is better, just because nobody ever asked me if I wanted a Pellegrino in the writer's room.
I have an obsession with books about kids with Asperger's syndrome.
We put stereotypes on ourselves. Everybody does that. But I think it's just a little harder for black kids to just be who they are.
Black men struggle with masculinity so much. The idea that we must always be strong really presses us all down - it keeps us from growing.
I'm very impatient, so I was like, 'I want to be able to do whatever I want now.' But even the biggest stars - you look back and they weren't overnight.
I'm very confident in my point of view. 'Cause I think that that's all you can really have. I'm never really going to know what anybody else is going through, so it's just kind of your job to be expressive with your point of view.
