In an interview with XXL, Meth said his role in The Cobbler made him take his acting career a lot more seriously.
“I take it more serious than I have in the past,” he said. “I’m more grounded. I’m going to my classes, [getting] coached, everything, the works. You don’t want anybody just jumping into this genre and thinking they can cut the line and not do the homework in a field that requires you to be good or even great.”
