What do you direct?
I work at VH1, and I have a web series.

What’s it about?
Nine gay brothers who’ve moved from Ohio to New York and are all redheads.

Is it based on your life?
Not really. There’s more drugs and white pants than in my real life.

Are you a natural ginger?
I was born with curly red hair. My mom dressed me up as Shirley Temple when I was 2.

Do you want kids one day?
I’d rather be the cool uncle. Maybe I can teach them about things.

Like bad words?
And horror films.

What are you afraid of?
Spiders. They look like a human hand, which is creepy.

What about Charlotte’s Web?
That’s propaganda.
