LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.Today's subject is Charlie Farrell.

Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, once said he loved Los Angeles because it was a city full of ambition where everyone works two jobs. Today's "Seven Questions" subject is great example of this.

Chicago native, Charlie Farrell spends his days showing tourists the best Los Angeles has to offer as a tour guide. When he's not pointing out LA landmarks to fanny-pack clad vacationers in his big green bus, Charlie can be seen playing Bodhi in the longest-running live show in Los Angeles -- "Point Break Live!", the original concept play and adaptation by Jaime Keeling of the 1991 Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze movie Point Break.

Charlie, who can be seen tonight's performance of Point Break Live! at the Dragonfly, took some time to exchange emails with LAist to discuss backhanded compliments international tourists give Americans, Los Angeles traffic, his pick for Johnny Utah and much more.
