Mike Erwin speaks…Meet Braga from Brazil….

people/news
Erwin, 24, schmoozed talent agents at model searches until he convinced one to recruit him to Hollywood. "I wanted to speak, not smile," says the Texas native.

His first acting job was a walk-on in "American Pie." "I said one line, it was cool," he laughs.

But Erwin isn’t your typical young turk. Unlike his peers partying their way through Hollywood, he prefers playing chess with his girlfriend and catching up on his sleep. "Oh, and I’ll go to ‘The Hulk’ premiere if they invite me," he says.

Just don’t expect him to turn up all dudded out in designer gear. "Hell, I don’t know anything about fashion," he says. "I’m from Texas, where it’s all about a T-shirt and jeans."

And now that his show is on hiatus, how does Erwin plan to spend his summer? "I’ve got to find a summer job. I’m not making $20 million a movie yet."
