"I lived in an apartment in Spanish Harlem with no electricity, and then I lost that, so I'd just catch the blue train. It skips a lot of stops at night, and then it stays up at 181st Street, I think. So I'd sleep there. The security guy would come on and be like, 'Get out.' And I'd get out." Actor Taylor Kitsch recalls his past sleeping rough on the New York City subway as he struggled to find his way in the entertainment industry in his early 20s. He finally landed his big break in 2006 when he was cast in TV drama series Friday Night Lights.
