Face-to-face at last, Sway wasted no time in asking his television idol about everything from his past experiences on Happy Days and The Andy Griffith Show (because of which Sway claims, “I’m an avid angler now”), to his passions, recent production of the Made In America documentary with Jay-Z, and his current Project Imaginat10n – a social experiment featuring photos submitted by people across the United States.
