Bonus Trivia

.

"One casting director told me, 'You're the next Leonardo DiCaprio,' and when I heard that, I said, 'Let's talk about how I don't want anything to do with being like Leo.' He's an amazing actor, but the films we're pushing to do are different. I'm going my own way. In a big way." --Devon Sawa to Vicki Jo Radovsky in MOVIELINE, July 1997
