Kevin McKidd plays newspaper reporter Dan Vasser on Journeyman, but its his role on HBO drama Rome thats strengthened him up for the new shows serious schedule.
McKidd had to film a scene where his character has a bloody nose, and explains, They said, Okay, were going to put a little drop of blood on your nose, and I said, Listen, Ive been drenched in blood for the last three years.
But there is one advantage to the gore of his gladiator gig.
McKidd says, Filming Rome is very luxurious, while the fast pace and long hours of Journeyman is more like guerilla filmmaking.
But its Journeyman producer, Kevin Falls, whos really to blame for McKidds brutal but bloodless schedule.
Falls says, Were killing him, he works so hard. We have to lighten up so he can see his wife and kids one of these days.
Journeyman premieres Monday (Sept. 24) on NBC.
