That’s the actor Blake Griffin, who you may have seen guest-starring on TV’s 90210 or Necessary Roughness. Other notable projects that Blake has been involved with include the TV movie Super Shark and the highly anticipated 2012 film The Goats, directed by D. J. Caruso (I Am Number Four) and starring Val Kilmer (The Doors, Batman Forever).

Blake Griffin, a graduate of the prestigious Drama conservatory North Carolina School of the Arts, is also a bit of a fashionisto as we found out in this exclusive fashion shoot and interview.

 

 

DA MAN: One of your most memorable experiences is…

Blake Griffin: Is the day I moved to Los Angeles. I flew out with two of my buddies from North Carolina and arrived at an apartment I found on Craigslist. We had no idea what we were doing.  In one day, I managed to get my car towed in the morning and crack my head open in the evening while moving furniture into the apartment; blood everywhere. But, I got my car back for half the towing rate by paying the tow truck driver cash.

 

 

DA MAN: You can’t live without…

Blake Griffin: My dog, Django. I rescued her two years ago and it’s the best thing I ever did. She’s named after Django Reinhardt, the jazz musician. .

 

 

DA MAN: Your idea of happiness…

Blake Griffin: …Is working all the time. I get a thrill out of never stopping. Also, sweet potato fries!! Doesn’t get much better than those.

 

DA MAN: You value…

Blake Griffin: Morning coffee in bed and loyal friends. I rely on both to keep me going.

 

 

DA MAN: Something that you’ve not told anyone is…

Blake Griffin: I have a big crush on an actress name Patricia Wettig. Sure, she’s older than me and married, but a guy can dream.
