Broadway and movie star Anthony Rapp has some advice for young actors: Put your heart into it.
Rapp was a youngster himself when he was cast in one of Yul Brynner's tours of "The King and I" and on Broadway in "Precious Sons." He starred in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical "Rent" in New York and London from 1996 to 1998, and later in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."
"I admire people who seem like they're really putting their heart and soul into their work," Rapp, 28, said at a workshop with drama students Friday at the Interlochen Center for the Arts.
Rapp said he enjoyed portraying a villain in "Road Trip," a spring flick about college freshmen who hit the road to keep a package from being delivered.
"I think it's delicious," he said. "I don't mind doing unlikable things as a character."
