    A Fever for Chèvre

    The brothers Sandvoss moved from glitter to goat cheese.

    "Max began acting in college and found work (as Steve Sandvoss, his birth name) soon after arriving in Hollywood; he starred in Latter Days (2003) and appeared opposite Jennifer Aniston in Rumor Has It (2005)"

    As a part time actor who would love to be acting professionally full time it's hard to understand why someone who is having a lot of success getting film and TV roles would throw that away.

    I guess his priorities/goals just changed in life. That is not uncommon.

    Actually, I think Steve's career peaked with his early success in Latter Days. He doesn't seem to have done much significant acting after that. He and his brother have actually been operating that dairy goat farm in western New York for several years now. They seem to be sticking with it, and enjoying it. Hopefully they'll be successful.

    I think his Latter Days co-star, Wes Ramsey, is still acting regularly in supporting roles, but Latter Days seems to have been his heyday, too.

    Ironically Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who only had a minor role in Latter Days, has gone on to become a major Hollywood star.

    I've never tasted chevre ( goat cheese ). I'd like to try it sometime.

    A work colleague, after completing his 12 step program, quit to become a cheese maker in upstate New York. I wonder if there's a connection...
