So that for me, King is the quintessential example of everything that I could ever want to be in my lifetime.

How do you grow up in the shadow of a guy - I want to talk about the movie in a second - but how do you grow up in the shadow of a guy who really is a legend in his own time?
Give that to me so I can get out of here.
