The meeting of the Ryuks happened at the after party!! So great to finally meet and chat with my other half, Willem Dafoe. What a great guy full of love. So fantastic to see my fellow cast for the first time in a year: Shea, Paul, Nat, Margaret, Keith, and our captain, Adam. I'm so damn proud of this film and this cast and crew. I had the time of my life on this trip to NYC with my best friend in the world, @allieababwaaa. Death Note releases worldwide one week from today and I can't wait for you all to see it!! Now to fly home to LA. @deathnotemovie@netflix#deathnote#netflix#anime#movie#love#life#nyc#dreams#amazing#party#ryuk
Amazing first 24 hours with my girlfriend @allieababwaaa in NYC! Wandering around Manhattan, catching up with friends, having room service breakfast in bed, freaking out at the billboards of me in Times Square, getting the best pizza in the country at Lombardi's with my friend Ryan and seeing my friend and manager Gilbert, getting gelato at Ferrara, and now getting dressed to head to my first red carpet premiere. I love this city and am having the time of my life. All the messages of love from you guys all over the world has been incredible. I've seen them all. There's love right back!! Now... shall we begin? 🤵🏻 #kirasaves#dreams#deathnote#nyc#apple#pizza#icecream#love#actor#life#amazing#friends#breakfast#bed
Flashback Friday! June 14, 2016 -- If you know me at all, you know I'm ALWAYS a very serious person. Never ever silly. There's no place for that. Act your age. Oh and here's a photo of me as Jabba's slave at Gentle Giant Studios in Hollywood. What's it for? Absolutely nothing other than fun. Was there getting a cyber scan of my body last year for Death Note. This was in their building. You have to go down to your underwear for the scan. After the scans I said, "I've gotta get photos with Jabba." They said," Of course! We can take some after you get dressed." Ummmm no. Jabba's slaves wouldn't be given the courtesy of clothes. Like I said. I take everything VERY very seriously. 🤓 #nerd#naked#starwars#fan#flashbackfriday#friday#hollywood#california#deathnote#movie#photography#art#love#silly#fun#actorslife
Fired up Friday! I moved to NYC two years ago today. August 4th, 2015. It's been an amazing two years with #DeathNote and #Rampage just to name a couple things. I NEVER though I'd leave Tennessee and move to New York or LA. Now I've lived in both. You can do ANYTHING. You just have to try. ---- Who do you want to be? What do you want to accomplish? What's stopping you from doing it right now? You are. YOU are stopping yourself. Nobody and nothing else is. You are going to have to do it. People will help you along the way, but you have to make the calls, the decisions, the moves. You are the CEO. If you want something, start at the end. If you're at A and you want to get to Z, then work back from Z. Then you'll know the steps to get where you want to be. Now all you have to do is DO IT. No excuses, just do it. Go after it with everything you've got. Don't listen to people who say, "You can't." They told me I couldn't. They told me I was too tall. They don't know anything. Don't be afraid to fail. You WILL fail. But it's about getting back up and swinging again and again. The best baseball players miss the ball 7/10 times. They fail 7/10. The best in the world. So fail. Don't let fear stop you. Just go swing. You CAN do it. If I did it, you can do it. Now go DO it! 🏻🤙🏻 #goals#inspiration#love#friday#weekend#hollywood#justdoit#do#yougotthis#noexcuses
8 years ago this month I moved from Tennessee to NYC. I had no money, two suitcases, knew nobody, and an empty 9' by 7' bedroom (including the closet). My 6'9" self picked all I could afford and fit in my room: a twin bed and a two drawer nightstand. Now 8 years later I finally bought my first California king bed! HUGE for a bit guy like me. First time feet haven't hung off the bed since middle school. Goal accomplished. Always growing. Always getting better. Never settle. Keep moving forward. You had the greatest accomplishment of your life today? That's great! Now go get BETTER! 🏻🤙🏻 #goals#best#sleep#california#king#bed#tallpeopleproblems#hollywood#movie#dreams
- Throwback Thursday - October 13, 2012. I was working as a walker at NYCC. Here I am on my only break all day having lunch in Dale's RV from The Walking Dead. I probably got $10 an hour and worked from before sunrise to after sunset. Don't forget the hours to apply and remove the makeup. - Fast forward to last week when Death Note had a panel at SDCC in Hall H (6500 seats) and I play one of the main characters in it. They showed a clip featuring me, Willem Dafoe, and Nat Wolff. Quite a journey. - Follow your dreams. Trust yourself. Pick a place you want to be and GO. Do your best at every little thing, be kind to everyone no matter what, spread love, and swing for the fences. You can't ever hit a home run if you don't. You CAN do it. Now go get it!! 🏻🤓 #inspiration#work#dream#love#art#justdoit#believe#hollywood#movie#tbt#makeup#food#comics#zombie#dedication
Moments after our last shot of the film. Literally the time of my life making this movie and so excited to show our hard work to the world April 20, 2018. Also, who's that 7' tall nerd at the end of the video? 🤓🦍
Mission accomplished! That's an OFFICIAL WRAP on our movie #Rampage.
To my director @peytonology, our producers, our incredibly hard working crew, all departments and every individual who punched the clock.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for your talent and dedication to making a great movie.
And thank you for rollin' up your sleeves with me daily to put in the hard work. It's my pleasure to help lead such a great team.
And as the ol' saying goes, if the good Lord's willin' and the creek don't rise... I'll see you all down the road. ~ DJ #ThatsAWrap#Rampage 4-20-2018
