From box-office smash movies to television show favorites like “True Blood” and “NCIS”, I’ve always been recognizable for my athleticism and size. From playing football at Fresno State to my breakout role in Adam Sandler’s hit comedy, “Mr. Deeds”, I’ve always had a passion for using my talent to benefit the most vulnerable among us. I’ve had the opportunity to take part in activities benefiting such charities as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and organizations that rescue neglected and abused animals. But today, I’m taking a stand and joining the fight with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
