You can learn a lot about the fan favorite in just 60 seconds
What was the last gift that you bought for yourself? “I bought a trip out of the country to Prague in the Czech Republic. I’m going to be enjoying that trip for New Year’s. It’ll be my second time being there.”
What are the TV shows that you can’t miss?
“I can’t miss NOBODIES or UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT. I also love GREAT NEWS and SCHITT’S CREEK.”
What’s your favorite: pie, cake or ice cream?
“Chocolate on all; I am truly a chocolate addict.”
What is your favorite sport?
“Track and field. Specifically the sprints and the jumps. I was a long jumper in college, and I did a little sprinting, so it will always hold a special place in my heart.”
Who makes you laugh?
“My dog, Jeff. He has the funniest looks on his face when I talk to him. Plus, now that I know his personality, I can tell what he’s thinking
a lot easier.” Which movie do you know from
start to finish? “Boomerang. There are so many amazing and legendary performers in such a
great comedy. When the cast includes Geoffrey Holder, Grace Jones, Eartha Kit, Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock, you know you have to see it more than once. And I must’ve seen it at least 10 times.” What was your first car, and what had you planned on being your first car? “My first car was a Volkswagen. What did I plan on when I was a kid? A Lamborghini.”
What’s your favorite summer activity?
“Pool parties and traveling! I went to the Pacific Northwest this summer. It’s one of most beautiful places on earth in the summertime. Mostly because it rains the rest of the year!” Who is the most famous person that you’ve ever met? “Sidney Poitier. It was years ago, when I was still working a lot of regular jobs. This job was at a department-store bar in Beverly Hills. He came up and asked for a glass of water. I couldn’t believe he was standing in front of me. I could tell that he knew I was a little starstruck, and he was kind and cordial. He’s in a class by himself.”
What’s your favorite amusement park?
“Magic Mountain because I absolutely love the thrill of roller coasters. The scarier, the better for me. My favorite is Twisted Colossus. Four minutes of thrill — that’s a long time for a coaster.”
If you ever see Samuel snacking, odds are he’s indulging his love of chocolate.
