We talk to actor and writer Geoffrey Thorne.
The actor turned writer tells his extraordinary story of riches to rags and back to riches again.
He talks about why he walked away from a successful acting career in In the Heat of Night, the people that doubted him, the desperate times of pretending to be his own manager and being turned for a job drawing Disney-style porno promos.
He talks about the struggles to make it as a writer, hanging on to the positive comments of one editor and building a varied career writing what he wanted.
Geoffrey talks with extraordinary honesty - interspersed with some timely profanity - about the very real struggles of making it in a tough profession.
A fun, heartfelt and candid journey through Hollywood.
