Bonus Trivia

.

Pardue on being discovered while working as a PA and losing a series job that would have kept him too busy for film work: "I'm definitely the luckiest guy in Hollywood." --to Interview, September 2000.

.

"I don't need anyone else, which is a great feeling, but also a depressing one. No one ever taught me how to shave; no one ever sat down to watch a Braves game with me. I paid for Yale myself, I lived by myself, I taught myself how to play the guitar. I did this all on my own." -- Kip Pardue to Premiere, October 2000.

.

Pardue giving props to his "Remember the Titans" collaborators: "'Titans' was a great experience. It was a script that was heartfelt and it felt like we were making a smaller film. AS opposed to just another high school movie, we had two seasoned actors [Denzel Washington and Will Patton] coaching us along the way. "They offered us advice, professionalism and ideas all during the filming." --quoted in Variety's "10 Actors to Watch" feature, October 24, 2000.
