Tonight’s episode is named Shopaholic and is about “an angry husband [who] fears his wife’s shopping addiction has returned after countless unexplained charges show up on his credit card. The truth is revealed when private investigator Brian Wolfe takes the case.”
I play the angry husband and Rachael Murphy plays my shopaholic wife, Audrey. Kari Lee Wasoba plays Lindsay. We had a lot of fun making this episode. The scenes were not scripted and only had particular goals and objectives. This improv allowed us to have authentic reactions to each other and made for some explosive arguments. Without giving anything away, let’s just say that the slap was planned for that scene but the timing was a total surprise!
It was a pleasure working with Karga Seven who run a great, professional, and friendly production.
My episode of Weather Channel’s Hurricane 360 called “Mayhem in Mississippi” airs tonight at 11pm and then again on Saturday (8pm) and Sunday (11pm). It’s a recreation show which means that the actors recreate the scenes that are being described by people who were actually there.
Below there is a trailer for the episode.
I had a lot of fun working on this one with Sam Dolan, Erika Toraya, and Max Lasser. Sam did such a great job editing that you can’t tell that the recreation scenes were all shot in drought stricken Los Angeles!
Criminal Minds episode 920, “Blood Relations” is airing April 2nd at 9:00pm on CBS. My main scene is in the teaser (the part before the main titles) so tune in early. I play Clark Howard who is a member of West Virginia family that is embroiled in a long-simmering feud with another local family. Things get ugly and the Criminal Minds team has to come in and figure it out.
It’s going to be a great episode. For starters, the script for this episode was written by co-executive producer, Breen Frazier, who is known for his intriguing episodes. This script is true to form and will keep you guessing until the end. Also, it was directed by Matthew Gray Gubler who plays Dr Spencer Reid on the show (the tall, fast-talking, kind of geeky agent). This is the seventh episode he’s directed and he pays such close attention to detail on every aspect of production that the results are seamless.
Working with Matthew was a joy. He has specific visions for his scenes in mind and is totally articulate with his descriptions which makes it easy for the actor to bring it to life. He also has a calm and patient presence which helps everyone stay focused when there is an inevitable problem on set (lighting, squeaky dolly wheel, uncooperative props, etc).
