“Strange enough, I’ve been here for four or five years now.”
And despite being in those movies and starring in the 2020 indie romantic drama 2 Hearts, he revealed recently that he still doesn’t feel like he’s “made” a proper film.
“Strange enough, I’ve been here [in Los Angeles] for four or five years now, and because of this terrifying new digital age, I’ve only ever really made things that are on streamers or television,” he explained.
During the interview, Jacob also reflected on his journey toward industry success. After completing six months of acting school, he booked his first movie “and was like, ‘Sweet, I’m set now, I’m gonna be the greatest actor that ever lived.’ And then it was, like, crickets.”
While Jacob has yet to star in “an original hardcore film noir picture” — something he calls a “dream” of his — it’s safe to say his future is very bright.
