Thomas told us exclusively, about Squatters:
“Squatters is a beautiful script with a visually visionary director. The moment I read the script, I decided no one else was going to take the role of Jonas away from me. This a very rare and very exciting feeling for me. There have only been a handful of roles I have played that I was insanely determined to acquire: Lance Loud (Cinema Verite), Ethan Denton (Angels Crest), Smith (Kaboom!), and this role was one of them. The character is smart, sensitive, mature, immature, reactionary and caring all at the same time and I am holding my breath to start filming a real challenge of a character again. It also takes place in the world of homeless youth in Los Angeles, which for both my film Whore and my screenplay The Walk of Fame, I had studied and emersed myself in for years. So I feel very comfortable embodying an individual in that landscape.”
