Jason Dolley is the cutie you may recognize from his role in Warner Bros. Saving Shiloh. Jason can also be seen in Complete Savages, the Disney Channel's TV movie, Read It and Weep, and the film The Air I Breathe, which is due out in 2007. Get the goods on this up-and-coming cutie.

Sindy: Hi Jason. How are ya?
Jason Dolley: Great, thanks.

Sindy: You have an impressive resume for a kid your age. How did you get into acting?
Jason Dolley: I'd always wanted to be an actor since I was a little kid. I don't really know what the inspiration was exactly but I do know that whenever I watched a movie and I saw the main guy - you know, the cowboy riding in on the horse - I'd say to myself, "I want to be that cowboy. I want to be the guy on the screen." I started acting when I was about 11. I really didn't think about it being a real opportunity until then - but I started out and it worked!

Sindy: What was the first job you ever got?
Jason Dolley: I think the first thing I ever did was a Kellogg's S'mores commercial. Shortly after that was a student film called Chasing Daylight, which has won several film festival awards - so I'm really proud of that one.

Sindy: Can you tell me about your upcoming film, The Air I Breathe?
Jason Dolley: The cast is HUGE - big, big names - such as Brendan Fraser, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kevin Bacon. Unfortunately, I never really got to work with any of them, but I did get to meet Brendan Fraser because I play the younger version of him. That was a great experience and was shot in Mexico City. It was a great experience. It's coming out next year sometime.

Sindy: You're also on the TV show Complete Savages. Do you prefer working in film or TV?
Jason Dolley: I think I prefer film. In film, you do a movie and you meet a bunch of people, and throw yourself into a character. When it's over, you get to meet new people and play new roles and have completely new experiences.

Sindy: What sort of roles do you see yourself looking for in the future?
Jason Dolley: Up until the pilot for Enemies, I'd played the nice boy. When I was in Saving Shiloh, I was Marty, who was a good-natured kid who loves his neighbors. But in Enemies I was Mickey Holloway, a bad guy who grows up to be a mobster. That was a very different role for me to play and it was really fun - so I think I might be looking for the bad guy roles because they're a lot of fun to play.
