Liev, I keep being told that I look just like "Ray Donovan",that it's uncanny. I actually took a picture of you when you did HBO sports,posted it on Facebook saying I recorded my first song and nobody picked up on the fact that it was you and not even me,people just wanted to hear the song. I thought it would be cool to meet sometime or maybe do some crazy spot on Ray as a long lost brother. Juse a thought...
