“Chase” star Jesse Metcalfe divulges little known facts about himself in Access Hollywood Live’s “Three Things You Don’t Know About…” segment. What priceless items does he collect? Also, what is his all-time favorite movie genre?
This is a VERY short interview for Television Without Pity, taken at the NBC Upfronts. Jesse discusses his new show. Haven’t seen any videos for this. I’ll post it if I find it!
Jesse Metcalfe: Every episode we’re going to be chasing a different bad guy. Sometimes we get ’em, sometimes we don’t, but it’s a lot of action, great writing and great characters, and also a bit of a humor to it as well. It’s basically a gritty, authentic look at the lives of U.S. Marshalls.
I assume your character is a good guy? Metcalfe: Yes, I play Luke Watson, I’m the new guy, the kind of wet-behind-the-ears new member of the task force. I don’t have a lot of field experience, so I’m not really accepted at first, and have to work a little harder.
Is it safe to say that you’re done with Desperate Housewives for good? Metcalfe: I think most likely I’m done with the show. You know, it’s a change of networks, a total different turn for me. This is a completely different character than what I played on Desperate Housewives, and a completely different show. This is a gritty, hard-nosed drama, and Desperate Housewives is a primetime soap. This is definitely a new, more mature turn for me, and I’m excited about the opportunity.
