CJ is my nickname. It stands for Cameron, and my middle name is John.
I was watching TV one day, and there was this open casting call for extras, and my brother says, ‘You wanna try out for this movie?’ and I said, ‘No, I’m okay.’ And then he said, ‘Do you wanna be on a DVD?’ And I said, ‘I wanna be on a DVD!,’ so I tried out.
The first movie I did was ‘Dan in Real Life,’ which was directed by Peter Hedges, the same director who did ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green.’
What I learned about acting is that you become the character, like I became ‘Timothy Green.’
