I am an actor, comedian, and musician. I think you'll find I have a very unique perspective on my life.

If you’re like me, you have to remind yourself that it’s okay to be sad. It is devastating and terrifying to see so many talented, loved people who it appears have had everything I ever wanted take their own lives in one way or another. My father committed suicide when I was a boy, and after years of trying to understand, I have forgiven him. Depression is a confusing thing. Robin Williams, as it is achingly clear now, was one of the most beloved people on Earth. The positive that comes out of this, to me, is seeing so many of my friends and people of whom I’m a fan come out and not be afraid to share their sadness. It’s not only a scary wake-up call for those of us who need to be reminded that success and even love are not necessarily equated with happiness, but a reminder that none of us are alone in our feelings. I was lucky enough to be around close friends yesterday who reminded me (probably without being aware of it) that there’s still plenty to laugh about. Depression runs deep. It’s okay to not be okay. I am still surprised at how sad I am about all this, but it’s the courage of my friends expressing themselves that helps me allow myself to be. And for that I am very grateful to you all. If anyone wants to talk, I’m around.
