When he was 9 years old, Platt along with his family visited the Kennedy Center in Washington, where he watched a performance that helped inspire his acting career. “One of the performances that really made me want to be an actor started out with this probably 20-minute rambling, drunken monologue by this bum. And it was a young Morgan Freeman. I’ll never forget it. This guy was just so riveting. He stood there on stage alone before the curtain went up, and he held this audience utterly rapt. Including myself, obviously.” According to Platt, drama departments gave his childhood some stability, “It was something of a survival mechanism, in that it gave me a little subculture to plug into wherever I ended up. Kids need that. I certainly did.”
