"he was phenomenal from Day one. And I'm here to tell you it's not an easy job. It's technically demanding, and it requires an incredible strength of imagination.And that's something I think Josh brings to this that's so important. Imagination and authenticity - those are the two major requisition for the role, and he has them big time."
