Didn't Plan to Become an Actor at First

The 'End of Watch' star didn't always want to become an actor. At first, his intention was to carry on the family business for which he studied civil engineering. He thought of taking on the business that his father had been handling for decades once he completed his college graduation. 

However, during his years in college, he changed his mind and shifted his interest towards acting and filming. So, he went to California State University as he changed his major in film production and international business.
