Today’s Guest: Christopher Gorham, actor, “Ugly Betty, “Covert Affairs”
The last time Christopher Gorham was on Mr. Media, he and a lot of other people were dealing with the sudden cancellation of ABC’s “Ugly Betty.” Gorham made an indelible impression on that show as Betty’s frustrating as all get out boyfriend, Henry, who was always just beyond her reach.
Gorham wasn’t yet sure if Henry would make a final appearance on Betty—he did—but what he really wanted to discuss was a new USA Network show he was shooting called “Covert Affairs.” This is a high-profile gig for Gorham, playing opposite Piper Perabo and Peter Gallagher; he plays Auggie Anderson, a CIA military intelligence agent who was blinded while on assignment. The show airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
CHRISTOPHER GORHAM podcast excerpt: “I can’t follow things on ‘Covert Affairs’ with my eyes; I have to follow sounds. I can’t react to people’s facial expressions There are some limitations in acting.”
And we’re going to talk about that today, but first I want to know the same thing that actress Alyssa Milano asked in her blog last week: what’s with the widely circulated picture of a shirtless Christopher Gorham getting his belt tugged by the hand of an otherwise out-of-sight female?
