We got to steal away a few moments with JJ- Manny in Jordan Jaffe's new dark comedy CRUDE. We asked him the (not so) hard questions and here's what he had to say.
So Jose.. JJ- where are you from originally?
Sweet! We love our Texans here at Black Lab. How did you get involved in this production?
The wonderful Kel Haney.
She is pretty awesome.
So tell us- what are you enjoying most about this rehearsal process?
Getting to know everyone!!!!!!!!
What character do you have the most in common with?
So it's said that you can take the boy out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of the boy. Is there a place in NY where you get your TexMex fix?
Gueros in BK! Breakfast tacos!!!!!!
Texans love their breakfast burritos.
What's your fave tourist trap here in NYC?
Dave and Buster's. It reminds me of Texas.
Hahaha- you're the best. Which reminds me-- worst pick-up line you've ever used?
"You have eyes like a cow. They're big and beautiful, but you still know they're on a cow."
Alright- to top it off, what's your favorite cocktail and/or midnight snack?
Favorite cocktail. Bud-Light and Sprite. Trust me. Midnight snack. Flaming Hot Cheetos. Again. Trust me.
I do. I think.
