Will Dave Annable Leave "Brothers & Sisters"?
"Brothers & Sisters" star Dave Annable whose character Justin is headed for Afghanistan at the end of the season opened up to TV Guide about his role on the critically acclaimed drama and said he does not know if, how and when he's coming back.
Annable said the drama got a lot of unwarranted negative publicity last summer due to all behind-the-scenes changes, but he and the rest of the cast perceived them as a way to improve the product, not a sign of trouble on the set.
He said he loves taping those big family dinner scenes that the Walkers are known for because the cast are all very close, they have lots of fun together and they even miss each other when they are off the set.
Dave is not sure if the writers will go into the 'forbidden' territory of a closer relationship between Justin and his half-sister Rebecca (Emily VanCamp), but the two do seem to have a special bond.
Although he hasn't seen the script for the season finale yet, the actor believes his character will be going back to Afghanistan as the season closes and hopes the writers will find a way to bring him back or keep him on.
Annable believes all actors on the show are somewhat similar to the roles they are playing, apart from Matthew Rhys who is not homosexual in real life. He seems to play the role very well, though, as people often approach him in bars and ask if he is gay.
The actor did not want to elaborate on his relationship with Grey's Anatomy star Kate Walsh, but he did speak about his short-lived FOX drama "Reunion" where he played one of the three central male characters.
Annable believes the show failed to catch a following due to being scheduled before the baseball playoffs and being put on a month-long hiatus, never a good sign for a highly serialized format.
Finally, the hunky star of "Brothers & Sisters" said he was flattered by being called one of the sexiest male TV stars by TV Guide and after he becomes more comfortable with the idea he might make a T-shirt out of it wear it to bars.
Catch an all-new "Brothers & Sisters" this Sunday at 10/9c on ABC.
