Get to know Jose!
TCTP: Adam knows what snack to bring to any occasion. What's your go-to snack?
JC: Chocolate is my go to snack. All kinds expect white chocolate (I mean it's okay, but it's not even really chocolate).
TCTP: Is there a missed opportunity in your life?
JS: Yes, but I believe everything happens for a reason, so I try not to regret letting an opportunity go.
TCTP: Max and Jenna lie about their relationship all in the name of love (or wanting to get away from it.) What do you think is worth lying for?
JC: I'm willing to lie if it means protecting someone's feelings. I know that might not be the "right thing" but I'm just so afraid of hurting people.
TCTP: MISSED OPPORTUNITIES is a spin on classic romantic comedies. What's your favorite rom-com and why?
JC: My favorite rom-com would have to be Dinner for Schmucks. I love both Steve Carell and Paul Rudd in pretty much everything, but I see a lot of myself in both of their characters in that movie.
TCTP: All four of our characters are just 20-somethings trying to live their lives and be adults. When do you most feel like you're adulting?
JC: Making my father proud makes me feel like I'm adulting. Also the first time I was cashless and had a dead phone really made me feel like an adult because the fact that no one around cared about my dilemma really made me realize that I'm grown and for the most part alone in the world. When you're a child people will listen and try to help, as an adult not so much. You're just fucked.
