He Was a Competitive Snowboarder Who Turned to Acting After a Doctor Told Him to Stop
Acting wasn't Mitchell Hoog's first career choice. He was actually on a competitive snowboarding team in Colorado until a doctor told him to stop because he kept getting hurt and concussed. "I started searching for something spiritual and tangible to get my hands on, to fill that void once I stopped snowboarding," he said in an interview with VMan. "I've always been a big reader and very curious about many things. My cousin, who is an actor, told me I should try acting."
