If Missouri native Brandon Barash hadn't become an actor, he says he would have been a doctor. That's because the then-USC student had a dual major: theater and pre-med. "My plan was to play college basketball and become a surgeon," he says. But a knee injury changed those plans and Barash found solace in performing in school plays. However, the burden of such a heavy dual major took its toll and Barash had to make a decision. "I came to a crossroads," he notes. "You can't do both."
