DC Exclusive: Former GL, Y&R and DAYS Star Brody Hutzler Talks Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role and Going Gay For The Bay!By Jamey Giddens on October 01, 2010
If you're in the Los Angeles area tonight, you'll definitely want to swing by the ACME Comedy Theatre (135 N. La Brea Ave) at 9 pm PST to catch multi-soap hunk Brody Hutzler doing a turn in ACME's Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role. I recently caught up with the easy going actor, who "angelically" romanced Michelle Bauer (Rebecca Budig) in Springfield, poured a mean cup o' Joe in Genoa City and helped a certain Fancy Face get over the loss of her son Zach in Salem.
Hutzler revealed how terrified he is about doing improv and how he hopes the rampant cancellation of daytime soaps has reached a state of "homeostasis". He also allowed me to attempt to pry some juicy dirt out of him regarding his upcoming gay turn in Gregori J. Martin's red-hot sudser The Bay. While Hutzler hasn't started filming as the soap opera's Kenneth Allen—a closeted gay man with political aspirations, who falls for a male nurse named Matthew (The Lair's Thor Knai, see below)—he says he is looking forward to playing out the story arc.
As for other soap gigs, would Hutzler relish the opportunity to return to Days of Our Lives in order to once again help Hope (Kristian Alfonso) through her latest ordeal. Now just whaddya you think?
Daytime Confidential: Are you excited to be appearing in ACME Comedy Theatre's Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role this Friday night?
Brody Hutzler: Yes, very...and scared to death. READ MORE
Oh my damn. Our boy Nate Golon, creator and star of WORKSHOP, has outdone himself with this hilarious promo for the upcoming second season of WORKSHOP. The spot features two members of WORKSHOP's season two cast, known for playing the heck out of some soap opera psychos. One look at this clip and you'll see why Luke Kerr and I jumped at the chance to sign on to officially lend WORKSHOP a little support. Check out Passions' alum Phillip Jeanmarie and As The World Turns' Marie "NutMeg" Wilson (who will also appear in this season of The Bay) arm wrestling for soap nut supremacy after the jump. Season Two of WORKSHOP premieres this December! READ MORE
DC Exclusive: The Bay Creator on Moving Poems and Letters From ATWT Fans, Mary Beth Evans and Being Praised by TV Guide!By Jamey Giddens on September 27, 2010
The Bay returns this Wed., Sept. 29 at 3 pm EST, with not one, but two soapgasmic webisodes back-to-back! I recently caught up with creator Gregori J. Martin to discuss his buzz-generating, dream sudser come to life. In part one of a two-part chat, Martin reacts to The Bay being named one of the "Shows Worth Watching" by TV Guide Magazine. He also shares a moving account of all the letters and poems he's received from fans of the recently-cancelled CBS sudser As The World Turns, thanking him for offering them a new soap home.
Martin then reveals what's coming up for three former World Turners, who happen to play pivotal roles on The Bay—Marie Wilson (ex-NutMeg, ATWT), who will appear near the end of the first season as the mysterious Claire, Dylan Bruce (ex-Chris Hughes, ATWT), as troubled golden boy Brian Nelson and of course, one of daytime's most beloved superstars— Mary Beth Evans (Kayla, DAYS; ex-Sierra, ATWT; ex-Katherine, GH) as The Bay's central antiheroine Sara Garrett.
Martin expresses what it means to have Evans involved in the soap opera he's been working on for over a decade, not only as the star, but a producer. He also shares what drives Sara Garrett—despite all her faults—is her unwavering love for her three children by three different men. Martin also has kind words for all the web series pioneers who've inspired him, such as Andrew Miller and Eden Riegel (Imaginary Bitches), Martha Byrne (Gotham) and Crystal Chappell (Venice), while explaining how his 80's-themed pot boiler is unique.
Daytime Confidential: Congrats on being named Number 9 in TV Guide Magazine's "What's Worth Watching" Guide for their Sept 20–26 issue! That has to feel good?
Gregori J. Martin: Thank you. That came as a very, very big surprise. A few days after The Bay premiered, the magazine came out. It was pretty exciting! TV Guide actually reached out to us. It's funny because I have my personal email linked to The Bay website's email, so sometimes it takes me a few days to get through all the emails, and I almost missed the note from them! [Laughs] The reporter said she'd been hearing a lot of positive things about The Bay, and she wanted some pictures. I sent her the link to our Photo Bucket account. I didn't even know what was happening. Then I saw the magazine. It was amazing to be picked by TV Guide as a show worth watching with all the great new and returning Fall shows. READ MORE
