We’re all really great friends, and they’re all so supportive of me, and I’ve been so supportive of them. You’re all making it clear that it was an amicable decision, and that there are no hard feelings. I just knew I would be putting myself in a position where I couldn’t commit 100% to the O-Town reunion, and I know how big of a deal it is to get back together.
I think they understand, because they remember when we were back in O-Town how much I wanted to get involved in the acting world. I don't think people really realize how hard it is to reunite with a band.
But through all that time, I had an agent and was going to auditions when I was available. I would book projects in the acting world that I couldn’t do.
So when thinking I was going to be in the show for just three months.

The very first opportunity I got -- I had lost my voice that night or something and my understudy had to go on -- I bought a ticket to see .
I had one of those experiences where, after the curtain drops, I was just glued to my seat. From that moment I was like, it would be so incredible to be in this show someday.
Quite a few people had already said to me, "God you’d be the perfect Fiyero! As a teenager, I joined a small acting studio and I would have loved to have gone forward with that.

So I spent the last couple of years developing myself, I did a couple of TV projects, got attached to a pilot that didn’t end up getting picked up, did a couple of cool indie type movie projects, but just kept trying to grow.
" So of course I was elated when, a few years later, this opportunity came my way. In 2007 you joined the cast of on Broadway as Link Larkin. But what happened was I got this audition for , flew out to Las Vegas, and my career ended up going this whole other direction.
