"[The episode is] based on a true story about two cops who had an experience with a young man who was financially successful as a realtor. Then things went bad for him because he had a drug addiction, and he found himself on Skid Row at the bottom of the barrel. So I'm actually playing a portrait of a real cop.
Vaughan's episode is slated to air in Dec.

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
