If I Can Change, So Can You!

Almost a dozen years ago, I appeared in Richard Linklater’s movie Waking Life as a nihilistic character known as Self-Destructive Man. Imagine my surprise when 60 Minutes did a story in mid-January about Jared Loughner, the Tucson shooter, and mentioned he was obsessed with the movie.

Then they showed my scene, as if I may have been an influence on him. This was a huge shock, and I didn’t want 60 Minutes to have the last word. Fortunately, Jim Swift of KXAN was interested in my side of the story, and filed this report:

    Cool story, Chris. I like what you’ve done with your life, congrats. I’m gonna make it down to Austin one of these days, maybe we could get together.
    Best,
