Billy Crystal on Monsters and Overcoming
You, too, can accomplish the impossible!
Overcomers are Open to Change. If Billy Crystal’s original plans had panned out, he’d have been an athlete instead of an actor/director. “At first, I went to school to play baseball,” Crystal says, “but that didn’t work out, so I transferred home to a junior college where they had a fantastic acting program. That’s where I really went nuts. I was heavily involved with everything. ‘Let’s do this, let’s do that!’ We built a theater and I got my Actors’ Equity Card—and then I went to film school at NYU.”
