I knew Clark before he starred in Love, Simon. I knew him before he was an a capella star on The Sing Off. I knew him before he won his first Oscar. (It hasn’t happened yet, but it will.) And he’s not only talented, funny, and smart…but he’s also kind. He’s a big city guy but he’d be a wonderful small town neighbor. I spoke to him in 2015 about everything and nothing.
What was your first job, and what did you learn? My first job was a regional radio commercial for Coke and I learned how gratifying it was to get paid to do something you love.

What’s a necessary indulgence? I could never say “no” to anything wrapped in (or that incorporates) bacon, or a great sale!

Something most people don’t know about you? I’ve seen every episode of Battlestar Gallactica.
Do you sing in the shower? What’s your go-to tune? I do a full broadway show in my shower every single day! This morning I was singing a playlist that included Beyonce, Britney Spears, and Robyn.
What’s one thing on your Bucket List you’d like to see/do/experience? I want to live in Ireland for at least a year.
What would people be surprised to find out about your daily routine? People are usually surprised when they find out I don’t iron my clothes. I don’t even own an iron!
How do you order your eggs? Always over-medium with salt and pepper.
What was the first concert your saw live? *NSYNC No Strings Attached. It was life changing. They came down from the top of the stage suspended by strings like puppets.
Finish this sentence: I’m likeable because… my glass is always half full.
