Fishman matriculated from Orange County High School of the Arts, and was accepted in college to study veterinary medicine, but opted to pursue a baseball career to help raise his younger brother.

TV ShowsRoseanne
1[on beginning a script] I fight against the white on the page and the conventional thoughts that inevitably fill it first.
2[on writing] I'm inspired by the synchronicity of life. The moments that take our breath away, where we're on the edge of our seat and our eyes forced to well up
3[on Oprah about loving the crew]: I had about two hundred aunts and uncles who taught me everything I needed to know. The women taught me to be a hopeless romantic and the men taught me to be a strong willed man.
4My goal is to not only earn good work as an actor, but hopefully write and produce good work for others.
5I've always tried to be a positive example of the Entertainment Industry and overcome the perceived negative connotations of growing up a "Child Star". It was important to everyone from the show that all of us kids on Roseanne grow up to be responsible adults.
6Losing Quinny (Glenn Quinn) was a devastating for me. Glenn could light up any room, even the darkest night. His absence made me think about what I wanted in life and how short our time is. He sparked my return to acting. I think about him all the time.
7On raising his younger brother: "In a lot of ways we grew together. Taking care of him helped me matured. In so many ways he's like my first kid. Matthew would be the first to tell you I was strict and fair. I made all my really big parenting mistakes with him. My kids reap the benefits of that experience".
8I love being an actor. As a kid you know black and white, anger and happiness. Kids usually don't have the life experience to paint all the shades of gray. I was a happy kid living a dream surrounded by great people on Roseanne. Life teaches each of us nuanced conflicting emotion. I'm stronger personally and professionally from all my life experience.
9Hopefully I can be one more positive example of a person who grew up in this Industry and handled it with dignity and humility.
10As a child actor it's important to follow the examples of people like Ron Howard and Jodie Foster who not only have been successful as adults but as members of society.
