Matt: Hollywood is fickle; your career can end pretty fast. If the acting jobs dry up, you have to have something to fall back on. In fact, that would be my advice to kids interested in acting - make sure you get an education too.
Matt: A lot of actors think they don't need to go to college because they already have a career, but that's a bad idea.
