I think that obstacles lead to growth and ultimately, the most learning I've done in my life is between jobs.
Obviously with the onset of cable and satellite, there are more opportunities for programming and original programming, so it creates more opportunities for actors and producers and directors and everything.
I think in both of those situations, it's important as an actor to learn, despite the success I had as a kid, that it's important to understand what it means to be a small fish in a big pond.
First of all, it was in my contract. I knew I would be directing an episode.
I would say probably Pirates of Silicon Valley just because I'm proud of the work, playing Gates.
