    Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Taylor Kinney

    The Forest actor takes our Q&A!

    What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

    Brush my teeth.

    When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

    A beer.

    What’s the one word you are guilty of using too often?

    "Um." I say it way too often. It's something I'm working on.

    What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

    I searched for New York Times crossword puzzles.

    Who is the last person that called or texted you?

    Guido. He gave me a phone number to call.

    What’s the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

    My dog with his head out the car window.

    What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

    Someone asked me how wedding planning was going and I answered by saying "It's a surprise."

    What is your TV guilty pleasure?

    PBS. They have all the nature programs and I like nature documentaries.

    What’s the first CD you bought?

    It was the soundtrack to Miami Vice. It was probably in the mid to late '80s — I was a kid and my mom got a CD player and I remember listening to the theme song.

    And what music are you currently listening to?

    Country — on SiriusXM I listen to Willie's Roadhouse and Prime Country.

    What movie makes you laugh the most?

    Dumb and Dumber.

    What toppings do you like on your pizza?

    Plain! I'm a big crust guy. I think what makes a good pizza is the crust so if that's on point, then I don't need a topping. If I had to pick something it'd either be sausage or pepperoni. Or green peppers! I like Hawaiian with pineapple, green peppers, and ham. I guess that's actually a lot of toppings.

    What drives you absolutely crazy?

    People who chew with their mouth open.

    What was your first online screen name?

    I've had the same email since I was fourteen years old and the start of it is "tbone." I'm in my thirties now and I've had that since I was fourteen.

    What’s the last thing you copied & pasted on your phone?

    An address.

    What’s your favorite curse word?


    And finally: what is the one food you cannot resist?

    Fried noodles. It's a family recipe that's been kind of handed down through generations and my brothers and I have it for birthdays and for holidays. It's simple and it's just special. I love it!
