He also worked with Habitat for Humanity for CMTs Home Blitz before landing his most recognizable role as a handyman and carpenter on the hit series, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
I paid my way through college by swinging a hammer, Littlefield said, explaining how he worked to cover his tuition. Building sets, building houses. My dad taught me to do these things.
In the interview, Littlefield explained that he was working as an actor in New York and an agent convinced him to go to LA, but he found it to be even more competitive for jobs than he expected.
To make money, Littlefield said, he painted houses. During the process, he painted the house of one producers of Discovery Channel. The producer thought he would be wonderful host. Two months later, he started hosting for the Discovery Channel.
Always be ready for your big break. You never know when your time has come, host Haley said.
