“I tape my chest, as though I’m taping it down. As if I’m taping down breasts. It’s weird. It’s a weird feeling. I feel like there’s something there, like I’m hiding something. I have that physical feeling. That really helps me. I talked a lot to Roy (Steinberg), as well, and he told me about some of the classes that he took in the past, when he was at Yale and such. He said, ‘Dan, just be a woman. Walk around a room at a party and pretend you’re a woman.’ He’d had to do it for one of his acting exercises. All of a sudden I felt like I cared about my appearance a lot more, I cared about what people thought of me. I wanted a guy to come try to pick me up!”
Isn’t that what he was trying to do on Boy Meets Boy? And didn’t it work fairly well if I remember correctly? Reach back into your past, Dan — motivate!
