"I met Nathan in 1995 in Memphis on the set of A Family Thing (written by myself and Billy Bob Thornton and starring Robert Duvall and James Earl Jones). Nathan was an actor and did an outstanding job, as he did on a later movie Billy and I wrote, The Gift, starring Cate Blanchett. Nathan has been a good friend for nearly 20 years. He is a very talented actor and filmmaker, and more importantly, he is an outstanding person."  

Tom Epperson - Writer/Producer


"...the bottom line is... he's a pro."
