Who gave you your big Leonardo DiCaprio break? Mary Kellogg at the Titanic Museum in Branson. That was my first gig. I worked at the museum for one month in July 2009 as Jack Dawson. Then she flew me to New York on her private jet to appear on the Live! With Regis and Kelly show. I stayed at the Trump Towers. Pretty big stuff for a country boy!
Who's your Kate Winslet? I wish I knew!
What career would you choose in an alternate reality? A horse whisperer, where the horses talked back, so I wouldn't have to wonder what they were thinking.
What's the strangest thing someone has asked you to do as Leonardo? To pose as her boyfriend and attend her daughter's wedding in order to make her ex-husband jealous. I value my life, so I turned that one down.

Have you been asked yet to dress up as Howard Hughes or J. Edgar Hoover? Not yet, but who knows.
How long do you think you can sustain a career as a Leonardo DiCaprio lookalike? It is more of a hobby that makes people smile. I suppose as long as people seem interested, Mr. DiCaprio doesn't do something real stupid, and I don't get too fat!
Does Frank Lloyd Roberts want an acting career in his own right? At one time, I thought about it. But it is difficult to get your foot in the door. I have been in some college and high school plays, and love it, but you have to pay the bills. I certainly wouldn't pass up the opportunity to be Mr. DiCaprio's stunt double, but so far, he hasn't contacted me.

Interesting brush with the law? To meet the cable guy, I was traveling a little too fast when I met a local trooper. He clocked me at 93 mph, and yes, I received a ticket. He didn't seem to care that my father was a retired patrolman.
