“This year has changed the way I see and feel about so many things; it has been a thrilling and, at times, enlightening education,” he wrote. “I have, to this point, chosen projects from the perspective of a young actor trying to walk in the footsteps of more seasoned actors I admire.”
He continued, “But I am learning that a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job — that has become much clearer to me in the past few months, having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence.”
“I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer,” he wrote. “I’m not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations.”
