DC: #536: Walt Willey Interview


Jackson Montgomery is back, and we’ve got him! On today’s episode of the Daytime Confidential podcast, Luke and Jamey talk to All My Children veteran and all around nice guy Walt Willey, who recently reprised his signature role as Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) most enduring lover on the sudser.

This Friday, April 9 at 9 pm Willey will be appearing at SoCal’s hottest spot for sketch comedy, ACME Comedy Theatre, where he will be hosting "Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role". Willey offers DC listeners a preview of his upcoming show, and gives his hilarious reaction to having witnessed the infamous Kato Kaelin hosting the show when he first visited ACME.

"He’s held up good since the white van days," Willey quips.

Then the discussion shifts, of course, to what it’s like for Willey to be back in Pine Valley— by way of Los Angeles instead of New York— and to be working again with the likes of Rebecca Budig, Vincent Irizarry, Julia Barr, and of course the unforgettable Susan Lucci. It’s an interview Pine Valley lovers and comedy buffs alike won’t wanna miss!

If you are in the SoCal area be sure to go see Walt Willey in ACME Comedy Theatre’s "Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role" this Friday night at 9 pm. ACME Comedy Theatre is located at 135 N. La Brea Ave Hollywood, CA 90036. For everyone else, you can watch the show being streamed live at www.acmecomedy.com. We will also be posting a reminder with the link on the blog before the show. Also, be sure to visit Walt Willey’s official website Willey World.

    Yeah, it’s amazing what can happen once a show gets rid of an INCOMPETENT writer!!! Jackson Montgomery is back where he belongs—-now he just has to learn how to manage his EXCEEDINGLY CRAZY daughter and his ex-wife/soulmate/thorn in his side Erica Kane!!!

    Great interview! I want the show to write some funny stuff for Jackson (esp w/David and Donna attempting to write a romcom story w/Erica), b/c even in audio I get why he gets the praise for his comedy, b/c WOW funny guy!

    I am so happy Walt is back I was fortunate a few years back to go see his stand up routine which is so funny. I went expecting to see "Jack" but oh boy no way is Jack anywhere near his routine. Very nice man too
