Talk Nerdy With Us recently chatted with actor Delpaneaux Wills. He is best known for roles in Chasing a Dream, The E-Ring, Las Vegas, The L-Word, General Hospital, Darktown, Sand Sharks, and Do You Believe? He’ll be guest starring on Life in Pieces this Thanksgiving. Read our interview below.
How does Agent X stand out from other Government/CIA/FBI shows?
AGENT X is a different show about the government, because it shows that the Vice President has some power. In AGENT X, Sharon Stone’s character Natalie Maccabee, becomes Vice-President and is informed that there is a secret paragraph in the U.S. Constitution creating a special agent to help protect the country in times of crisis, under instruction of the Vice President.
What was your audition process like?
I auditioned for another character, but I did not get it. A week later they called my agent and offered me a part in the last episode of AGENT X that aired called “BACK IN YOUR ARMS”. I played the role of a Croupier, which is a Roulette dealer. That is what’s great about acting, before that role I did not know anything about roulette. Now I understand the game of roulette. I know how to deal, place bets, and how the payouts go. I am ready for Vegas (laughs).
Yes, I am going to be on the upcoming episode on “Life in Pieces” called “HOSPITAL BOUDOIR TIME-OUT NAMASTE” Ep.9. It will air November 26th on CBS on Thanksgiving. Yes, I am usually drawn to drama where I get to play detectives, police officers, and soldiers.
Speaking of genres, what type of TV shows do you find yourself watching?
The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are my favorite shows, I guess that would be dramatic fantasy.
How fun was it to be on the set of Life in Pieces? Does everyone have the same great chemistry off camera as they do on camera?
It was fun, the cast was great. My scene was with Colin Hanks and Zoe Lister-Jones. They treated me as an equal and gave me good feedback.
Our site is called Talk Nerdy With Us, what kinds of things do you “nerd out” about?
I “nerd out” about comic books, I still have a collection from childhood. I have been to Comic Con, and it was the greatest experience of my life. I would love to go back soon.
