“I enjoy expanding myself. Having the opportunity to play new roles allows me to expand my skill set. I’ve had a lot of fun doing horror films. I think it’s more about the story for me as I enjoy playing multiple types of roles. I enjoy playing a father figure, military commander, husband, and CEO types. However, I did a comedy recently and had a lot of fun. I would love to do a lot more of that in the future. “ -Mike Provenzano.
