Are you one who has watched shows with household value, those that were the staple-hood of television? Guest Lee Paul, an Air Force veteran who was an officer in King Soloman, Alaska, grew in Brooklyn, New York and followed his own “yellow brick” road of interest in science and arts, taking him to the dreamland of many...Hollywood.

On the show, he talks about what originally brought him to the drama department (a girl he was chasing) and how it wasn't the girl he fell in love with that ultimately led him to stardom. He also talks about some of the roles he played (the one in The Sting being the most significant), what his father equipped him with to fulfill these roles, and how it was cyclical in his life. This is an amazing story in itself!

There are some very good points Lee makes about having a good background and craft along with what it takes to make it in “Hollywood.” However, this philosophy is something that can be applied to anything one would like to achieve in life!
