Shane Dean

He's one of three Draculas currently flapping their capes on local stages, but future Oscar contender Shane Dean is not willing to take third place — or any crap about his use of Mop & Glo, either.

I knew I wanted to be in show business when I saw Michael Douglas make it really cool to be a cop on The Streets of San Francisco.

The worst thing about being an actor is starving.

The happiest day in my life was when I won my first Oscar . . . Oh, wait! That hasn't happened yet.

If I could be anyone other than myself, it would be Steven Spielberg's favorite son.

It’s not entirely true, but I sometimes tell people that I use Mop & Glo on my cranium.

My worst audition ever was when I was 7, and my mom had me read for the lead in her favorite musical, Annie, wearing a little red wig. I was their second choice.

The fictional character I am most like is Jaws.

I am utterly terrified of waking up in 12th-grade calculus class and discovering that this has all been a dream.

I laugh uncontrollably at Will Ferrell movies.

Something I have never admitted to anyone before is I invented the solar-powered night light.

Currently, I am reading The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice.

The first time I got drunk, I passed out and woke up with my eyebrows shaved off and my mouth full of kitty litter.

Like my mother used to say, "You can do it."
