I asked him what he wanted me to do . He said beat up some guy and throw him in Donald Trumps swimming pool as James Bond. I love preforming so it was very exciting to do. I have won many industry awards presented in Las Vegas . Of course working along side of Sir Sean was the Highlight of my career
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would Take my friend to Las Vegas to show them a great time. I have many entertainers as friends in Las Vegas . And James Bond always creates a scene in Vegas ! I would attend many shows that my friends are featured in
