“He would like Brad Pitt or David Spade to play him,” Rebecca said, adding: “He doesn’t refer to David Spade as David Spade — he refers to him as ‘Joe Dirt.’”

He has not yet seen the series, but he is aware of the acclaim.

“He’s in jail, so he can’t necessarily watch it, but once the show dropped he was getting hundreds and hundreds of emails to his jail mail, and he was ecstatic,” his husband Dillon Passage revealed to Andy Cohen.
