Blue Mountain State
From 2005-2010, Brooks played the role of Caroline and Shawn Brady's adopted son Max. Max left Salem for London with his niece/fiancé Chelsea (Rachel Melvin). The Daytime Emmy winner went on to star in Spike TV's now-defunct football comedy series Blue Mountain State.
On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke, Regan and Melodie discuss the latest in All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and news. Also, due to popular request we’ve included a Performer of the Week segment in this week’s podcast.
All My Children plans to kill off Thorsten Kaye’s popular character Zach Slater. What will Kendall do without the love of her life? Should AMC bring in someone new for her, find someone for her already on canvas or let her become a strong independent woman?
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas kisses Brooke. It may have been a stunt, but Luke looks forward to the drama it stirs up. Heather Tom lands a guest spot on The Mentalist. READ MORE

If you’ve listened to the Pop Confidential podcast you know that Regan and I often have similar tastes in TV shows, with a few exceptions such as my love for all things sci-fi and her appreciation for that MTV drivel Jersey Shore. But now we both have something to rejoice about, the return of our guiltiest of guilty pleasures, Spike’s raunchy Blue Mountain State starring Days of our Lives grad Darin Brooks.
If you haven’t watched Blue Mountain State and are ready for some big laughs and more and a few "ewww" moments then tune in for its second season premiere on October 20. Watch the Blue Mountain State promo after the jump! READ MORE
Darin Brooks dished with TV Guide Magazine about his upcoming comedy, Blue Mountain State. The Daytime Emmy winner fills readers in on why he had a Guns N' Roses moment during his acceptance speech and clues viewers in on his upcoming character.
Now we know why you had such a potty mouth—and got bleeped—at the podium when you won your Daytime Emmy last year.
Here’s what happened: I left Days in May, immediately went to Canada for three months to shoot the entire season of Blue Mountain State, then came back to L.A. at the end of August just in time to go find myself a suit and get to the Emmy ceremony. It was nuts! Winning the award came as such a shock, which is why I swore on national television. [Laughs] Also, it’s hard to stop now that I get paid to swear.
Your character thinks he can get away with absolutely anything—and does. Is this the ultimate fantasy role?
Yeah! But Alex doesn’t do it in any evil, vindictive way. He’s a good-hearted kid who just wants to get by, and nobody’s going to keep him from doing that. For an actor, it’s very freeing. Days was kind of like a machine, you knock out so damn many pages every day, so damn many episodes every year, you shoot weddings that go on for a week. That’s not a bad thing but it is a machine. Blue Mountain State is done on the fly. They let you improvise. They want you to improvise. I’ve always got crazy s--t playing in my mind, and they let me go with it.
Blue Mountain State premieres Jan. 12. READ MORE
