May 21, 2017

Chuck and Stacey conclude their interview with David Hayter, powerhouse voice over actor in the Metal Gear Solid video game franchise and King Shark on The Flash, screenwriter of X-Men, X-Men 2 and Watchmen, and Director of the film, Wolves. David speaks to the challenging times in his career and the nine years he spent in in Los Angeles before he was able to support himself as an actor and a screenwriter.

He talks candidly about having the tolerance to survive in the entertainment business and deciding if the risk is worth the rewards you may or may not get in your career. His bottom line is, if it doesn’t make you happy, then do something else.

He shares some behaviors and habits, like being curious, confident versus arrogant, that have helped him succeed. And by staying open to new possibilities he was able to discover other talents he possesses as a director and producer. David explains the journey and timeframe he goes through to try and get a screenwriting job or sell a project to a Studio or television network. He expresses what loves about his career and the enthusiasm and passion he puts into everything he does. David reveals some of his upcoming acting projects like starring in the video game The Long Dark, and appearing at fan conventions this year in Hawaii, Washington D.C. and Toronto.
