Jesse Metcalfe: Lose Yourself in Music!
Desperate Housewives alum Jesse Metcalfe looks pensive in these shots from Da Man magazine’s latest issue.
Here’s what the 31-year-old actor dished:
On how he came to Hollywood: “I was studying film at the Tisch School of The Arts at New York University. While in college, I was also modeling. My model agent sent me on an open audition for a daytime TV show, Passions, and I booked the job. That brought me out to Hollywood.”
On his passion for music: “I love writing and playing music because it’s a very direct and unaffected means of expression, and for me very cathartic. When you’re playing and performing you lose yourself, everything else fades away, it’s just like ‘being in the moment’ as an actor. I love all types of music, but listen mostly to indie rock, classic rock and folk.”
On causes important to him: “I actively support The Go Campaign, which is a grassroots fundraising organization that promotes philanthropy and awareness across the world. I’m currently aiming to raise $4,653 to purchase an eco-friendly brick-making machine, so Kenyan youth living in a slum can improve their lives and their community.”
